I knew about 'The Hole In The Wall Gang,' thanks for the two others.

Paul Newman is one great guy. I met him on several occasions in the 80's when he lived in the Malibu Colony. This guy has gone about his life, not on the front page of every magazine promoting his charitable self, yet doing much behind the scenes. I watched him donate a huge sum of money to a drug prevention/awareness group in LA back then, having lost a child to addiction. Newman is the real deal. I hope he hangs around a lot longer, but he will go out the same way he lived his life. With class and dignity; something very hard to find in his industry. God speed Paul Newman. www.bobbyvassallo.org
