Prior to his untimely passing, we had, in fact, planned to release these five new films to follow up the ten we’ve already released. The vast Warner library holds even more Newman films including such favorites as The Prize, The Rack and Until They Sail, and Newman fans can look forward to those on DVD in the not-too-distant future.” One of Hollywood’s most enduring and beloved superstars, Paul Newman made his debut in The Silver Chalice in 1954, followed by his first hit, Somebody Up There Likes Me, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and other numerous successes, including The Hustler, Hud, and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

His charitable giving was legendary, and for that he was honored with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 1994. His line of food products, Newman’s Own, whose profits are all donated to charity, have resulted in over $200 million in donations to several causes, the most famous of which is The Hole in the Wall Gang Camps for terminally ill children.
