There's nothing I can say about Mr. Newman that isn't already being said far better than I ever could by millions of people all over the world. The thing that popped into my head right away, though, was when he did an interview with James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio. He explained that one of the techniques he used was to put breaks in non-obvious places during his lines. Something along the lines of -
"The murder happened between eleven and midnight where were you [pause] last night Mr. Smith"
Of course he did it the right way. Little things like that are what made him more than just an actor. If we're lucky the TV and Cable stations will be showing his movies for some days to come.
