Appeared in films: fruity bird of youth "," Buch Cassidy and Sandens KID "," trickster "," scam "," white "," Verdict, " The smell of money (premium " ; Oscar), "Mr. and Mrs. Bridge" and other director′s films "Rachel, Rachel", "The influence of gamma-rays on the lunar daisies, etc.

Paul Newman was born Jan. 26, 1925 in Cleveland in the family sporting goods dealer Arthur Newman. "As a child I was not really that well studied, - the actor remembers. - Sport is not successful, and I am eager to win. I have never been a great babbler ... "

In 1944, Newman College of Kenvanskogo left a volunteer in the Marine Corps. Served two years of radio, he returned to college. Newman played in the evenings, the student theater. Handsome, athletic built, with bright blue eyes and disarming smile, he quickly achieved success in the student scene. Paul decided to try their luck on the professional stage and joined the company in the town of Woodstock, where the year has played in sixteen plays. At the same time, Newman met with the young actress who became his wife and give him a son and two daughters.

After the death of his father Paul was forced to return to Cleveland to lead the family business. But this exercise was to him not to your liking. Promuchivshis year, Newman went to study at Yale dramatic studio. In 1952, it noticed one of the New York theatrical agent.

In New York, the young family lived modestly. There Paul was the only decent costume, which in the early morning bypassed theatrical agency in search of work, and in the evenings selling encyclopedias. A month later he was able to attached to the TV - in tiny roles, without text. Feeling that he did not have enough schools, Newman came to the famous actors studio, where he taught Lee Strasberg and Elia Kazan, adherents of Stanislavsky. "I do not come to New York - remembers Paul - I had no idea what this acting game. Absolutely. Not a clue. And I am very, very lucky. "

Soon one of the best of American theater "Gilda" invited him to play "Picnic" on the play by W. Indzha. However, the role of inherited Nyumenu not home, but critics called his performance "excellent," and company "Warner Brothers offered him a long-term contract.

In the theater "Gilda" Newman met with the actress Joanne Woodward. She shared with him all the professional joys and concerns. Love them was difficult, but after five years Paul has been able to marry Joann ...

Newman made his debut in cinema in a historical movie "Silver bowl" (1954). He appeared in the role of the ancient Greek sculptor, deception sold into slavery Romans.

Criticism is not spared either a picture or an actor. Sam Newman after viewing the tape was covered horrified, traumatized. "

When Paul returned to New York, directed by Arthur Penn offered him the role of an old, maimed, brought life to the insanity of the story of boxer Eda E. Hemingway "Champion." The task was all the more difficult that the actor had to play a human in the age range from twenty to fifty years. Paul coped brilliantly with the role, and now Robert Wise invited him to his film "Somebody up there, I nravlyus" (1956). It was a screen biography of the champion boxer Rocky Graziano.

Newman spent considerable time in the society celebrated athlete, he began boxing. He was able to discern, in its raw, hero of humanity, even glimmers of tenderness in relations with his wife. Realism games Newman criticism associated with the actor′s studio Strasberg.

Many years later he recalled: "I was invited to films that are clearly promised a large cash success - kostyumno history, adventure, pictures of violence and sex. Many times my manager pohnykat went to the bathroom because I refused to big earnings, preferring to play in the play the actor′s studio, or did not work. "

In 1957, Newman "rented" the company "XX Century - Fox" to take part in the movie "The long hot summer" (1958) after short stories W. Faulkner. This was the first joint work Newman with Joanne Woodward, shortly before becoming his wife. The picture was put director Martin Ritt. Paul appreciated him for his "wonderful sense of confidence and comfort." For the role in the film Newman received the Cannes Film Festival.

Meanwhile, "Warner Brothers" invited from New York, directed by A. Penna. In his Western "revolver in his left hand" Newman was the primary role of the famous bandit from the Wild West, nicknamed Billy-Kid. The film is in the office has suffered a failure that Penn at the time left the cinema.

But the next picture - screen plays T. Williams "Cat on a hot roof" - has Nyumenu first nomination for the Oscar.

By this time, Newman began to seriously weigh a contract with Warner Brothers. " In spring 1959, he returned to New York. Here he waited for the real work: Elia Kazan put "fruity bird of youth" by T. Williams. In this performance Newman played the role 336 times Chensa - with pleasure and with great success. A summer of great value, to swallow all of his savings, he bought out the company "Warner Brothers" its contract.

Two years later, Newman met with the talented script writer and director Robert Rossenom. In his film "trickster" (1961) Paul has created a professional bilyardista Eddy.

The film applied to the nine awards "Oscar", but got it just the operator and designer.

After the "trickster" for Nyumenom definitively established the reputation of not only cash-stars, the secret of the appeal which the magnetism of personal charm, but also a serious painter. The tempo of his work in film has become even more tense. Newman tried himself in various genres. He took off in the "fruity bird of youth" (1962), the comedy "Love in a new way" (1963), to screen the novel "The Prize" (1963), in the "torn curtain" in A. Hitchcock (1966), in historical-adventure film "Lady L". (1965). In the detective "Harper" (1966) Sex is so convincingly played a major role brave detective that earned comparisons with the celebrated master of the genre Humphrey Bogart.

In 1961, Newman entered into a two-year contract with studio Paramount. " Three of his script was rejected by the company as "too controversial." As a fourth draft Newman and directed by M. Ritt suggested screening novel L. McCarthy Mertri "traveling, rider." Thus came the movie "KHAD" (1963), named after the main character. Role Khada Bannon - one of the best biographies of Newman.

This picture of the uneasy relationship the old Texas cowboy Bannon Hadom with his son and grandson of sixteen Lonom. In an interview with the English critic G. Gow Newman said: "In my opinion, the film did not understand until the end. Especially young people. They prevoznesli this character, but because for us it was mainly to show people with all the external advantages, which are valued in dollars - attractive appearance, successful women, the ability to drink - and while the tragic ills. He spit at all, except himself. To some extent, echoes the thoughts of Tennessee Williams that the Americans are doing the primary bid for external beauty. To be charming - the same that have expensive cars and other symbols of social prestige. "

For the role Khada Newman was nominated for the third time in Oscar - and the third time it has received. According to Joann Woodward, certain circles are not accounted for liking her husband′s social activities: in 1963 he took part in a march on Washington for Civil Rights of Blacks, then, along with Marlon Brando, in anti-racism rally in the state of Alabama, which had Martin Luther King.

In Connecticut Nyumenov couple bought a spacious house. It was always fun: come to stay a son and two daughters from first marriage, Newman, and Paul with a young Joan, three daughters ...

Significant was the sixth joint work Newman and directed by Ritt - western, called in Spanish "Hombre" (1967). The man nicknamed Hombre and on behalf of John Russell had lived among the Apache tribe for many years.

He opposes the robbers, and spread them, sacrificing their own lives. Russell Newman performed - this restraint, the pride and dignity.

In the film "Cold Hand Luke", he played a failure Lucas, jailed. This role required an actor and mental, and a lot of physical stress. Long passages in shackles, the work under the sun for the construction of the road took a lot of force. For this role for the fourth time Newman was nominated for the Oscar. " The result was the same as before.

In 1967, Woodward read a novel writer Lawrence M. "Joke of God" and invited well-known writer S. Stern, a friend of family Nyumenov, reworked it for the cinema. However, all the studios rejected the script. So Newman decided to put the picture itself. Little experience of directing it was before: in 1958 he published a picture of tridtsatiminutnuyu A. Chekhov′s monologue "On the harm of tobacco." "In directing - he says - it is important first to active verbs. You can not play the word "love" - it is abstract, but you can play the verb "listen."

The film "Rachel, Rachel" was awarded several major prizes. The best director and best actress named Newman and Woodward the New York film critics. National Council look included "Rachel, Rachel" in the best picture the year. Hollywood association Foreign film awarded the Golden Globe film and actress Nyumenu Woodward.

During the summer of 1969 along with two other stars - Barbro Streisand and Sidney Poitier, Newman formed a film company First artists to produce and rentals of films with his participation. The first picture of them - "Win" (1969) - a melodrama of lost and found love again. Newman in the role of avtogonschika refused to back himself sitting behind the wheel of the machine, mchascheysya at a speed of 200 kilometers per hour. Motorsport - his second passion. Twice Paul won the title of champion of the country, and in 1977 at the age of fifty-two years old, took part in a round-the-clock endurance race and came fifth ...

In Western "Buch Cassidy and Sandens KID" (1969) George Roy Hill, Newman became a partner of unknown Robert Redford. The film was a great spectator success, while Newman led a list of the most cash actors.

Four years later the star duo appeared in the film "scam" (1973).

In 1972, Paul Newman once again acted as producer. At this time, he put the movie "The influence of gamma-rays on the lunar daisies on the same play by P. Zindela. At the festival in Cannes, Joanne Woodward received the award for best female role, and the National Council of the U.S. look again including films like this before "Rachel, Rachel", one of the best paintings of the year.

Over the next four years, Newman kept the most cash in a dozen American actors.

One after another came out films in various genres, thriller "Man in the Macintosh," a comedy "shady" Detective "pool drowned," disaster movie "Hell in the heavens." Over the past Newman received a record fee.

"... In the United States as soon as the audience for the artist finds his niche in the living space, and insert it there, - notes Newman. - If I put a black wig and pridelayu funny nose, it is possible that no one wants to watch me. Americans prefer to receive goods at the usual packaging, but if it does not exist, they can be good and do not take. I think that on my tomb could have been a epitaph: "Here lies Paul Newman, who died in poverty because of his brown eyes suddenly."

It was only met with one of the best American directors Robert Oltmenom in the movie "Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or the lessons of history, is him who sits bulls" (1976) allowed him to re-engage in this art. Buffalo Bill was one of the notable figures of the era of development of the Wild West. The actor played it delicately, accurately, with the impeccable sense of humor.

Newman has maintained the excellent physical shape: he was motorsport, bathed in the winter ice-hole, daily immersed in the morning the head in a bucket of cold water. He was fifty when he played a veteran hockey player in the film, "Flash" (1977).

In 1979, R. Oltmen invited him to a major role in the film "Quintet." On the set worked together celebrities: Italian W. Gassman, F. Rey Spaniard, Swede Anderson, B., French B. Foss. "The most remarkable in Oltmene that on the court, no one has selfishness, - said Newman. - Egoist feel very hesitant to work with Oltmenom, and it is wonderful - you can freely experiment and delve into the role, knowing that this privilege granted and all the rest. "

The grim antiutopiya Oltmena in association with Newman caused a catastrophic future that humanity can expect as a result of nuclear war. These issues of concern to the actor. In 1978, Paul was a delegate to the UN Special Session on Disarmament.

Snyavshis from D. Petri in "Fort Apache, Bronx" (1980), Newman played later in the movie S. Pollack "Without malice" (1981). For the role vinotorgovtsa Gallagher, unjustly accused of murder of trade union leader, he has once again been nominated for Oscar.

In 1982, Newman was in the film "Verdict" (director S. Lyumet). Newman claimed the sixth time in the "Oscar", and again it is not.

It was only in 1985 when the actor was sixty years old, said the U.S. Film Academy Award for his contribution to American film. A year later, he still received the "Oscar" for her role in the movie "The Color of Money" (1986) Martin Scorsese.

The emergence of Paul Newman in the picture credits provided cash success.

Hollywood producers offered him 7 million dollars per film. General Groves in "fat boy and kids", the eccentric Governor Air Laing in "Blazey, a lawyer in" Mr. and Mrs. Bridge "- all these roles are played with brilliance veteran American cinema.

James Ivory film "Mr. and Mrs. Bridge" (1990) - a sort of biography prosperous family. Some moments of this tape reminds Pages living artists main roles - Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. More than thirty years of marriage they had a lot of problems, but love and respect never left them.

For creatures that have virtually nothing in common, our marriage is amazingly strong, "- Paul Newman jokes. In the painting "Mr. and Mrs. Bridge" they were shot in the fourteenth time (and in the fourth as husband and wife in the role). "Normally, I hate his movies, but I watched it many times, and he likes me."

When Newman is less. In 1994, viewers could see it in the film "his mind" Robert Banton. "Throughout the world, is now difficult to find a really interesting role - the actor explains. - When I started in the fifties years, then twenty percent of the time spent reading scripts and eighty - reading literature. Maybe someone else is to pull a good scenario! .. Cinema today is doomed to the production of expensive pictures with nizhayshim common denominator. Yes, akterstvo beginning to annoy me. I seem to be exhausted. "

About Field Nyumene say it serious, full of imagination, locked in itself, nevozmutim and cause irritation. In 1995 he was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest avtogonschik ever participated in a national championship. In its 70 years, the actor does not feel less confident and the steering wheel of their own aircraft.

After his son died of a drug, Newman formed a special fund to combat drug addiction. The fund, he listed income of an enterprise producing food, which is the name of Paul Newman ... That millions of dollars.

Newman once said: "I want to be remembered as the man who tried - tried to be a part of their time trying to help people establish communication with each other, trying to be respectable in his life, trying to grow as a person. You should always try - this is important. "

In 2001, the British film fans called Paul Newman the best actor in the history of this art form. These are the results of the poll, conducted by Radio Times.
