RIP, Paul

I’ve read so many moving tributes in the last day, anything I were to add at this point would just be extraneous. The world is a little bit diminished today.

This is a great little movie that hardly anyone saw. It was one of Newman’s last films (and Jessica Tandy’s last). I can’t imagine anyone else who could’ve made curmudgeonly Sully so likeable.
