Paul Newman : A CelebrationBook - 1999
Already a success on Broadway, in 1954 Newman began his film career - disastrously - as Basil the slave in The Silver Chalice. Yet before long he was considered not only a fine actor but also the sexiest man in films. Determined to control his career, he broke away from the studio system that dictated what roles he could take and, with astute choices of scripts and directors, established a screen presence that has remained both popular and respected. From Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and The Hustler to The Sting and Slap Shot, and on to The Colour of Money, Mr. and Mrs. Bridge and Nobody's Fool, Paul Newman has demonstrated his versatility as an actor.
