Abstract:

While this volume explores the extraordinary careers and the shared life of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, the primary focus is on the career of a actor as enigmatic as he is brilliant. The impossibly handsome and anti-hero is also an actor of exceptional versatility, who has defied typecasting by continually shrugging off stereotypes while extending his range. An actor who began by suffering from emotional reticence and became renowned for the passionate feeling of his performances. The star who is known as a sex-symbol but who has appeared without a woman in the films that contain some of his most famous roles. If the dazzling career to date is any guide, it is certain that Paul Newman is, and will remain, a superstar.
