"A Celebration of Paul Newman's Hole in the Wall Camps"

user
I was afraid I was going to have to introduce myself. I'm here because of my loyalty to Paul Newman. Our autobiography? We met many years ago through work and became pals. When we became friends. One thing we agreed upon was that we both took work seriously, but did not take ourselves seriously. We played a lot of games/pranks and had a lot of fun, some of it mythology, some of it truth. As for life in general, we were both aware of the joy of success. Along the way, he ad the chance to fo...

In a slightly nervous tone, and down to earth, non-eloquent manner, THE Madonna thanked everyone who attended and "The Tribeca Film Festival" for allowing her to present the film, as "it was distributed to other festivals, however, due to it's content, was not looked highly upon. I thank Jane Rosenthal and her risk taking behaviour. She's my kind of girl!!! I believe that the film is rewarding, creative and spiritual. I am grateful just to be sta...
