Paul Newman

Intense, cool and incandescent at the same time, his eyes bluer than blue: Paul Newman is The Grifter, Luke the Cold Hand, Butch Cassidy. An irresistible renegade character against the backdrop of his perfect beauty, who paved the way for all the actors of today.

On the occasion of the broadcast on the OCS channel of a documentary dedicated to him, this book looks back at the life and work of one of Hollywood's greatest legends. From Pussy on a Hot Tin Roof to The Sting, he represents the direct link between the golden age and the modern era. Humble, passionate, this Ohio native, who was never meant to be an actor, is a jack-of-all-trades who mixes work, family, theatre, and film in front of and behind the camera with a good dose of humour, class and simplicity. An activist and philanthropist before his time, he was also a champion car racer: at eighty, three years before his death in 2008, he was still racing! Reaching a true state of grace with maturity, he finally received the Oscar for Best Actor for The Colour of Money, and found great roles for the Coen brothers and Sam Mendes.

This richly illustrated book brings to life all the sparkling facets of this gentleman-actor. With interviews and rare, iconic and intimate photos. Of him, of his wife Joanne Woodward, of those who love him. An exceptional preface by Charlotte Rampling, his unforgettable partner in Sidney Lumet's Verdict. Unpublished testimonies from Jacqueline Bisset, Ellen Burstyn, Lolita Davidovich, Brigitte Fossey, Tom Hanks, Piper Laurie, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, James Naughton, Edie Shaw, Fred Schepisi, Ron Shelton, Dylan Walsh, or Sébastien Bourdais, driver of Newman/Haas Racing, the car team created by Paul Newman; the words of Tom Cruise, Sam Mendes, Robert Redford, Martin Scorsese...
