Movie Info

The world knows Paul Newman as an Academy Award winning actor with a fifty-plus year career as one of the most prolific and revered actors in American Cinema. He was also well known for his philanthropy Newman's Own has given more than four hundred and thirty million dollars to charities around the world. Yet few know the gasoline-fueled passion that became so important in this complex, multifaceted man's makeup. Newman's deep seeded passion for racing was so intense it nearly sidelined his acting career. His racing career spanned thirty-five years Newman won four national championships as a driver and eight championships as an owner. Not bad for a guy who didn't even start racing until he was forty-seven years old.

  • The portrait that emerges of Newman is of a decent, cool and low-key guy who preferred racing over acting. In his own words, "the only grace I ever found was in an automobile."

  • I don't doubt Carolla's respect for the material -- he himself is a racer, and owns and drives several of Newman's cars. But he's stretching a few interesting anecdotes out to feature length, and you can feel the strain on the material.
