Paul Newman on a Water taxi in Venice,1963
Paul Newman was an American actor, director, race car driver and humanitarian. Ive read many stories about Paul and they all seem to portray him as generous, kind and just an all around awesome guy. You have most likely seen Newmans Own brand dressings and other items on the food shelves of your local grocery store as well. Newmans Own is a food company from which Paul Newman donated all post-tax profits and royalties to charity, as of 2013 these donations exceeded 380 million.
Before his losing his life to lung cancer in 1988, Paul won an Academy Award for best actor for his performance in the 1986 Martin Scorsese film The Color of Money.
Paul won many other awards in his long career including six Golden Globe Awards (including three honorary ones), a BAFTA Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Cannes Film Festival Award, and a Emmy Award. Paul Newman loved to race and was quite talented and won several national championships as a driver in Sports Car Club of America road racing, and his race teams won several championships in open wheel Indy Car racing.
This particular photo of Paul Newman taken in 1963 Venice and puts him at about age 38 if I did my math correctly(Probably not). The original Black and white photo is below as well as my full size colorization. Feel free to share this post on your social network of choice or leave a comment in the comment section below.
