I'm very pleased that this thread is up and running again.  I was having difficulty accessing it so that I could give my vote to it, and I had to send an inquiry to the IMDb community support administrator, and he told me that it would be straighten out very shortly.  And sure enough, he was right.  And now that we can access this post, allow me to be the first to put in my $.02 in and say what I think was Paul Newman's most "unforgettable" movie role.  And it's really no question there, it's his role in 1969's "Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid".  I believe that was his all-time best role, and I challenge anyone on this forum to prove me wrong.
