Academy award-winning actor Paul Newman will be honored with a stamp in the fall.

The stamp, which will go on sale Sept. 18, features a 1980 photo of Newman by photographer Steve Schapiro.

Newman captivated moviegoers for six decades. He received 10 Academy Award nominations, including eight for best actor. He won an Oscar for his role in the 1986 film “The Color of Money.”

Newman also is remembered for his roles in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” (1958), “Cool Hand Luke” (1967), “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” (1969) and “The Hustler” (1961).

Newman used his success as an actor, writer, producer and director to advance philanthropic and charitable causes, including his SeriousFun Children’s Network, which has helped more than 600,000 children and their families. In 1982 he founded Newman’s Own food company with a commitment to charitable giving over profit. In its 33-year history, the company has donated more than $430 million to thousands of charities.

In 1998, Newman helped create the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy and in 2006, he co-founded the Safe Water Network.
