Connecticut Premiere ~ “Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman”

 Paul Newman Documentary To Have Connecticut Premiere

At Danburys Historic Palace Theatre Danbury’s Palace Theatre will host the Connecticut premiere of the new documentary film “Winning:The Racing Life of Paul Newman” on Friday, June 12.

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 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.
