Description by

Paul Newman's best-known films, including The Hustler, Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, and The Color of Money, are cherished both by movie lovers and within the wider popular culture. Dan O'Brien now explores the lineage of Newman's life. His father did not approve of his son's acting ambitions, but Newman forged on regardless and graduated from New York's fabled Actors Studio. He made a stunningly successful marriage with Joanne Woodward, but lost a son in tragic circumstances, and embraced political activism and good causes in later life.

Product Description:

An in-depth study of one of Hollywood's great leading men: philanthropist, model husband, world-class racing driver, and authentic silver-screen icon, one of the last and greatest living links between Hollywood's golden age and its post-studio-system era. Newman's best known films, including The Hustler, Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and The Sting, are cherished the world over. Daniel O'Brien explores the lineage of Newman's life, including his studies at New York's fabled Actors Studio, his stunningly successful marriage to Joanne Woodward, the tragedy of his lost son, and his commitment to political activism and good causes.
