An in-depth study of the life of one of Hollywood's great leading men: actor, superstar, philanthropist, model husband, world-class racing driver, and authentic silver-screen icon.Paul Newman's best known films, including The Hustler, Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and The Sting, are cherished both by movie lovers and within the wider popular culture. Daniel 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, graduated from New York's fabled Actors Studio, and made his name. He was startlingly handsome, but also bravely venturesome in his acting choices. 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. In the mid-80s, he enjoyed a remarkable double-Oscar-winning success, consolidating his status as one of the last and greatest living links between Hollywood's golden age and its post-studio-system era.
