2015 49¢ Paul Newman

First-Class Mail

 

Though he considered himself as ordinary as the next person, Paul Newman (1925-2008) is remembered by many as anything but.  An A-list stage and screen actor famous for his rebellious nature, Newman attained true celebrity status.  Aside from acting, he was a well-known environmentalist, social activist, racecar enthusiast, and philanthropist.

 

After serving in the Navy during WWII, Newman was discovered while acting at Yale’s drama school.  He was soon appearing on Broadway and a shot at movies wasn’t far behind.  Newman’s well-received 1956 portrayal of Rocky Graziano in Somebody Up There Likes Me launched what would turn out to be a 50-year film career.  He went on to direct and perform in numerous films including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), The Sting (1973), The Color of Money (1986), and as the voice of Doc Hudson in Disney/Pixar’s Cars (2006).

 

While acting was his craft, philanthropy was Newman’s calling.  He donated his personal resources wherever there was a need.  In 1982, he started his own company, aptly named “Newman’s Own.”  Today, his legacy lives on through his namesake foundation.  In its 30-plus years, the company has donated over $430 million to charity – all from the profits and royalties of Newman’s Own products, just as Paul intended.

 

Steve Schapiro took the photo of Paul Newman that appears on U.S. #5020 in 1980.  The stamp text recognizes Newman as both an actor and philanthropist.
