Paul Newman poses in a cowboy hat in Tucson, Arizona, in a publicity still for the 1972 comedy western Pocket Money. Newman, behind whom Taupin has arranged a downpour of gum wrappers and a section of the stars and stripes, was a conflicted patriot: a lover of cars and cold Budweiser who found himself on Richard Nixon’s enemies list for opposing the Vietnam War.
