When "Mr. and Mrs. Bridge," the latest film starring Paul Newman, debuts, gentlemen who have loved the recent crops of three-button suits and soft silhouettes will find a fashion feast.The filmakers turned to the experts at Savile Row tailor Gieves & Hawkes for the awardrobe for Newman and the rest off the cast. The British firm handed off the assignment to its American licensee, Hickey Freeman. The result is a collection of menswear styles popular from the 1920s to the 1940s.The movie should be filled with the original versions of some of the fall's best looks.

Here is the fourth installment of a series that checks in with the eight Division III programs in the state to give a glimpse into the past and the future. Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Friday's visit was with McDaniel. Monday's visit is with Frostburg State. REVIEW The good: After setting a program record with 11 wins in 2013, the Bobcats improved on that mark with 13 victories this past spring. Included in that 13-5 record was a 4-3 mark in the Capital Athletic Conference and their first win in the league tournament - a 17-9 throttling of 2013 tournament champion St. Mary's on April 23. It was a welcomed departure from last year's 11-6 loss to Mary Washington in the same round of the CAC tournament.

His movie might have been spurned by Tangier's born-again Christian elected leaders, but that didn't keep Paul Newman away from the Chesapeake Bay island. The famous leading man had been booked for a private tour of Tangier on Thursday, apparently in anticipation of the filming of a PG-13 movie called "Message in a Bottle." Despite the Town Council's March 9 rejection of Warner Bros.' proposal to film some scenes on the island, Newman kept the date.Charter boat captains in Crisfield, Keith Ward and Curtis Johns, gave the actor a ride to the island and escorted him to the hardware store.

By the time the video begins, it's clear that something is wrong on East 26th Street. Cars are listing unsteadily on the edge of the chasm forming between the road and the rail bed below. What happens next, as they say, will astound you. Twenty-four-year-old videographer Nick Reyes managed to catch the collapse Wednesday of a good chunk of his block, as a retaining wall gave way in a torrential downpour. An urban landslide is unusual enough, but his dramatic footage has illustrated the power of the storm for people around the world.

The first question that people ask me when they find out I spent an hour with Paul Newman over lunch at his New York apartment is: "Are his eyes really that blue?"The answer is: "Yup, as blue as a bottle of Windex."The second question is: "So what was he like?""Well, he wasn't at all nervous about meeting me," I reply.As for me, I was cool as a cucumber in a blizzard. Except when I called him Paul Newton.In addition, he is charming, extremely witty, and most of all, inspiring. His blue eyes light up the most when he talks about Newman's Own Food Company.

Paul Newman the actor, director, race car driver, political activist and philanthropist has died - and a buoyant strain of the American spirit has gone with him. He was 83 when he succumbed to cancer at his home near Westport, Conn., on Friday. For all his adult years, he imbued each of his arenas with unique, muscular vivacity. Mr. Newman wore the mantle of his superstardom lightly. Honored as an actor and a humanitarian, respected for putting forth liberal views without condescending to opponents, he was a Renaissance man and a stand-up guy. With Robert Redford in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting , Mr. Newman became part of our national pop fantasy life.

NEW YORK -- "Nobody very remarkable ever come out of it, s'far as we know," says the Stage Manager in Thornton Wilder's Our Town, speaking of Grover's Corners. No matter how shruggingly off-the-cuff the actor delivers it, the line sounds like a lie. This is, after all, Paul Newman up there, whose remarkableness -- easygoing star charisma incarnate, here sporting a cardigan and specs -- makes the fictional Protestant Republican burg a mighty glamorous place indeed. The last time Newman played Broadway was in a 1964 romantic comedy called Baby Want a Kiss.

At last, more insight into Don Draper's psyche. Now that old Don is back, most of season six's sins have been cyclical, from revisiting adultery and prostitution to a hefty resurgence in Don's liquor bill. The reboot of old Don has sometimes made this season repetitive and dry. But it's to serve a point: Don's stuck in a vicious cycle of debauchery as a means to self-medicate. But can he change? This episode, on the other hand, was shocking -- filled with feelings of panic and anguish, rather than dread lingering from season five.

Music awards squeezed in between performances With performances by some of music's hottest acts - Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Kanye West, the Jonas Brothers and 15 others - who needs awards? The American Music Awards, presented yesterday during a live broadcast on ABC, kept with its long-held tradition of wedging prizes in between action-packed performances. "This year more than ever," said Orly Adelson, president of dick clark productions, which puts on the show, said last week. "We have 19 performances, which we've never done before ... Every big artist this year said yes, and we wanted them all."

Somebody Up There Likes Me 8 p.m. [Turner Classic Movies] TCM is running several Paul Newman movies, including this biopic of boxer Rocky Graziano. The Time magazine review in 1956 said: "Paul Newman brings to awesome life the jungle qualities implicit in a slum childhood." From Variety: "Paul Newman's talent is large and flexible." And from The New York Times: "He plays the role of Graziano well, making the pug and Marlon Brando almost indistinguishable. He is funny, tough and pathetic in that slouching, rolling, smirking Brando style, but with a quite apparent simulation of the mannerisms of the former middleweight champ."

I HONOR `real journalism,' which doesn't get clouded by false stories whether they're about me or anybody else," said Angelina Jolie at the Courage in Journalism Awards in Beverly Hills. So, you see, occasionally something does happen on the West Coast that isn't about Britney, Nicole, Lindsay or Paris. A saucy film Meryl Streep as Julia Childs? Nora Ephron is adapting the Julie Powell book Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen. The saucy Ms. Ephron will also direct and - hooray - the movie will be made in New York City in March.

Talk to Me never was sent to me as a director," says Kasi Lemmons, the 46-year-old black woman who ended up directing it superbly. "I lobbied for it," she says over the phone from Los Angeles. "I don't think they were looking for a woman director, [certainly not] based on my movies, which were ... more lyrical." Then she catches herself: Talk to Me, a live-wire portrait of Washington broadcast personality Ralph Waldo "Petey" Greene Jr. (Don Cheadle), is lyrical, "but with a different beat.
