    Figured this subforum needs a good and proper bump and what better than with a Paul Newman racing documentary? Apparently Adam Carolla has spent a few years and got some good interviews with people, some who have passed away. If you look at the bottom he got some damn fine interviews with people, including Newman before he passed.

    FilmBuff has licensed worldwide rights to distribute “Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman,” directed and produced by Adam Carolla, Variety has learned exclusively.
    The film, co-directed and produced by Nate Adams, will open in select theaters nationwide and on-demand on May 22. Newman’s racing career spanned 35 years. He won four national championships as a driver and eight championships as an owner. Carolla started restoring and racing vintage racecars in 2003 and has since acquired, restored and raced seven cars that Newman raced. “There were so many incredible stories about Newman over his 35-year racing career and I was amazed that no one wanted to commit to telling his story,” he said. Adams has over 30 credits in producing and directing documentary programming for Showtime, CBS, Animal Planet and History. FilmBuff released Carolla’s comedy “Road Hard” in March. The film includes interviews with Newman, Tom Cruise, Robert Redford, Patrick Dempsey, Robert Wagner, Joanne Woodward, Jay Leno, Mario Andretti and Michael Andretti. The film is also produced by Mike August and is executive produced by Norm Pattiz and Matt D’Andria.

    Newman actually start to race when he got into his late 40s. In case you aren't familiar with him here is a clip of him from Cool Hand Luke:

    Apropos of nothing, but something's really irritating about that Carolla guy.

    Oh thank you - thank you! - for saying this.

    I just don't get it with this guy. He's living proof that if Comedy Central wants a hot comic badly enough, they'll give his untalented friends in the industry development deals.
