The Sting is one of my all-time favorite movies. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Cool Hand Luke aren't far behind.
Which is why it hurts like hell to hear that Paul Newman -- one of Hollywood's truly great leading men, a movie star's movie star -- has died at the age of 83.
Newman was immensely talented, great-looking, an adventurer, compassionate and caring toward his fellow man, and most of all -- just plain cool.
They really don't make them like him anymore.
And maybe that's what makes the loss that much tougher to take.
