Paul Newman Documentary To Have Connecticut Premiere
At Danbury’s 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.
