All There Is

The new documentary about Paul Newman’s racing career is awesome. The iconic actor turned salad-dressing maven was also a brilliant racer — a hard-fought second place finish at the fabled 24 Hours of Le Mans was Newman’s greatest racing achievement. But more impressive was the way Newman was embraced by the racing community — he never showed a sense of entitlement, worked his way up from the bottom of the minor leagues and built credibility with his performance on the track. Watch the trailer on iTunes and carve out some time for this terrific film.
