The iconic actor Paul Newman died Friday at the age of 83.

Newman's role that most sticks in my mind is that of Brick in the 1958 film version of Tennessee Williams' play "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." In the movie, he played opposite Elizabeth Taylor in the role of Maggie and Burl Ives as Big Daddy.

Here is the first scene featuring Brick and Maggie:
