Beginning at 11:45 am Eastern time this morning on Turner Classic movies, they’re running a string of Paul Newman classics, all favorites of mine, especially the last three. There are a few on earlier, but I haven’t seen them before.
SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME 11:45 am
CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF 1:45 pm
HUD 3:45 pm
HARPER 5:45 pm
THE STING 8:00 pm
COOL HAND LUKE 10:15 pm
Harper is, of course, based on the Ross MacDonald novel, The Moving Target, the first Lew Archer novel. The Sting was the second pairing of Newman and Redford and Cool Hand Luke has perhaps my favorite line: Strother Martin saying, “What we have here is a failure to communicate!” I just love the delivery on that one.
