LATEST: Hollywood legend Paul Newman's family has urged film fans to honour the COOL HAND LUKE star - by doing a good turn for a friend.
The actor was almost as famous for his generous nature as for his roles in Oscar-winning classics Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting.
And, following his death on Friday (26Sep08), Newman's family wants the world to pay tribute to the star by doing something philanthropic.
His daughter Melissa says, "I guess what I really wanted to say was that anybody who wants to honour the memory of my father should know that he was all about doing things for other people.
"And if anyone's interested in honouring his memory, you could bring a bowl of soup to a friend or you could be philanthropic in some way, and just, you know, look out for each other."
