SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME His breakthrough film! Newman slugs his way onto the Hollywood map in the tale of boxing champ Rocky Graziano. Robert Wise directs. Winner of 2 Academy Awards: Best B&W Cinematography and Art Direction/Set Decoration.
THE LEFT HANDED GUN Teenaged desperado: Newman portrays Billy the Kid in the multilayered look at the Western legend. Arthur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde) makes his directorial debut.
THE YOUNG PHILADELPHIANS Newman plays a coolly ambitious lawyer climbing the ranks of the town elite - while caught up in a sensational murder trial. The supporting cast is equally sensational; Alexis Smith, Brian Keith, Robert Vaughn and more.
HARPER Harper's the name. Mystery's the game. In his first detective movie, Newman cracks a LA-LA-Land murder case and, along the way, revitalizes the genre. Lauren Bacall co-stars.
POCKET MONEY Two hard-luck modern cowboys may know cattle…but they sure can't recognize a bum steer. Newman teams with Lee Marvin and Cool Hand Luke s director Stuart Rosenberg in a sly, offbeat comedy.
THE MACKINTOSH MAN The code word for suspense! John Huston directs as Newman plays a covert agent unraveling a spy web that reaches into Englands Parliament. James Mason co-stars.
THE DROWNING POOL Intrigue is as thick as gumbo when Harper tails an extortionist in New Orleans. With Joanne Woodward, Melanie Griffith and directed by Stuart Rosenberg (Cool Hand Luke).
