Shawn Levy has written a complete biography which takes the reader from Paul Newman's birth to his death and there are numerous black and white photos which I consider essential in any biography. There is detailed analysis of the films in which he appeared but the only criticism I have is that it would have been helpful to have a complete filmography as an appendix. Overall, a recommended read whether you're a fan or not.
Well written with the right balance of background.
A good incite to one of our most respected actors.
I will look for other books by the author.
By all means mention the allegations, Mr Levy, but to give an unsubstantiated one such prominence smacks of giving in to pressure to get cheap publicity
