Paul Newman

S1, E6: Paul Newman

Available on iTunes
S1 E6: Through his tireless pursuit of excellence, Paul Newman has come to embody the role of heroic leading man not only on film but in real life. Spectacular film clips, rare screen tests, never-before-seen home movies, archival photographs and revealing interviews illuminate the public and private life of the Oscar-winning actor. Paul Newman defined a new kind of American hero: tough, confident and charming. Often he played outsiders; roles that stood in sharp contrast to his striking good looks. Off-screen, he was the consummate risk-taker; an entrepreneur, racecar driver, political activist and one of America's leading philanthropists. His face, on everything from movie posters to bottles of salad dressing, has come to represent not only quality but also integrity.
