Did You Know?
Being on [President Richard Nixon
's] enemies list was the highest single honor I've ever received. Who knows who's listening to me now and what government list I'm on?
Students at Princeton University have named 24 April Newman's Day. Students try to drink 24 beers over the 24 hours of the day. The tradition stems from a comment that Newman is alleged to have made; "24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not." The event is not officially sponsored by the university, and Newman stated that he would "like to bring an end to the tradition".
While he played similar system-bucking, troubled young men as such near contemporaries as Marlon Brando
and James Dean
, Newman's characters were often more humorous, introspective and self-assured. Newman's character's conflicts were often ironic and (intentionally) borderline-absurd.
