Newman will be missed. He did many worthy things in a long career.
Personally, I think his performance in The Sting is the jewel in his
crown. A couple of months ago I saw (most of) a movie with him playing
an old con who feigned infirmity and managed to escaped and ended up
pulling a caper with younger guys. I can't recall the title but it was
a good movie and he was very good in it. The kind of movie that
probably didn't make a big splash.
