Turner Salutes Newman

Turner Broadcasting System to air 11 Paul Newman films Oct. 12.

Turner Broadcasting System is giving over all of its airtime Sunday, Oct. 12, to a tribute to Paul Newman.

Turner tapped its library for 11 films including Cool Hand Luke, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Hud.

Newman died of cancer Sept. 26 at age 83.

The actor won Oscars, an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award, but later in life started a second career as a philanthropist, using the profits from his Newman's Own line of foods to fund various charities.
