Navy

Paul Newman's Naval service portraits. First photo dated 1943, second photo unknown. If anyone knows, please let me know! TSG didn't have much info on them.

What a babyface. He doesn't look old enough to be in the Navy!

just guessing based on my husband being ex-Navy, the first was probably when he joined in at bootcamp and the 2nd when he was done with bootcamp (longer hair and he looks like he lost some weight. Paul was certainly dreamy (and kind and talented and most of all a good husband and father). Watch Cat on a Hot Tin Roof sometime, it's almost blinding to see him and Elizabeth Taylor on the screen at the same time. Perfection.

Thanks Inky! Of course, I just noticed that he grew an inch or two between the photos.

I LOVE me some Paul Newman. Is it just me or is he timeless? I mean if you see pics of Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Robert Taylor, Tony Curtis, or other Old Hollywood leading men you can place them during a certain time period. I know he came after most of the guys I listed but if he was walking around today he'd fit right in. Actually he'd stand out 'cause he's damn hot... do I make sense? ;)
