Newman and Redford, Forever Linked

Paul Newman, 83, the actor and sex symbol who surged to stardom by playing loners as well as criminal and moral outlaws -- anything to downplay his astonishing looks -- died of cancer Friday, September 26, 2008, at his farmhouse near Westport, Conn.

Newman and co-star Robert Redford will likely forever be associated with their roles of Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, respectively, in the 1969 movie of the same name.

The Sundance Channel's Iconoclasts series paired the two again in its first season.
