This is one of a very few movies that stars two actors who were married to each other, each of whom won an Academy Award for acting during their careers-Paúl Newman for The Color of Money, and Joanne Woodward for The Three Faces of Eve. See more »

It should get more attention now, and it should have gotten more attention when it was released, because it's a good one. I liked the script even though a little bit melancholic at times it still works. Paul Newman's performance was on a level, a classy one (there's no other way you can play this kind of character, cuz it wasn't a kind of troublemaker or a bad boy character, which is what got attention at the time this movie was released), Joanne Woodward was good too.
The Story is treated fairly, it doesn't get boring at any specific point, and the ending is a dramatic one.
The problem is that it is hard to find it, most of the people that have seen it, have done so from the cable.
And for those who have enjoyed this one i would strongly recommend Paul Newman's "The Young Philadelphians" (1959), - absolutely ignore the ratings and give it a shot.
