Paul Newman (1925 - 2008)
"No man can eat 50 eggs scene" from Cool Hand Luke (1967)
My own favourite of Newman-directed films is the curiously titled The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds (1972), a touching drama of a suburban widow (Joanne Woodward, Newman's wife) and her two daughters. They don't make films like this any more.
