Goodbye, Blue Eyes 

Actor, philanthropist and seemingly all-around good guy Paul Newman left behind a distinguished body of work. Fans may argue which Newman performance was the best, or which of his many films is the greatest, but most would probably agree that The Hustler and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid could be on both of those lists. And as a nice tribute to the man's legacy, the Webster Film Series presents both of these fine movies in the short-run program, Newman's Own: A Appreciation of Paul Newman, from Thursday through Sunday (December 18 through 21) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or www.webster.edu/filmseries). Marvel at Newman's turn as self-defeating pool shark "Fast Eddie" Felson in The Hustler at 7 p.m. on Thursday and Saturday, and enjoy his thinking-man's cowboy in Butch Cassidy at 7 p.m. on Friday and Sunday. Tickets are $5 to $6, but free for Webster Film Series members. And maybe buy a bag of his cookies on the way home — the philanthropy doesn't have to stop just because Newman died.
