November 5, 2003
FRANKLIN, Kansas (AP) - Paul Newman made a gift described as "generous" in favour of the locality the Franklin one, in Kansas, devastated last May by a tornado.
The parts were intended not to reveal the amount of the cheque of the 78 year old actor, who precisely gained the Oscar of the best actor in 1987 for his interpretation in "the Color of the money".
Last 4 May, approximately a third of the houses the Franklin one, which counts nearly 500 inhabitants, had been destroyed in the passage of a tornado, while the post office had been completely shaven.
