Oscar winners Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward were two of the most famous movie stars of the last half of the twentieth century. Now, they are the subject of THE LAST MOVIE STARS, a fascinating documentary on HBO Max. The 6 hour long episodes explore the lives and films of these two Hollywood icons who were married to each other for 50 years. Much of the film is based on transcripts of at least 100 audio interviews made in the late 80’s and early 90’s. You will be surprised how much you’ll learn about both actors. And you will see substantial clips from many of their best films like COOL HAND LUKE, THE THREE FACES OF EVE, BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID, RACHEL RACHEL, THE VERDICT and more. I’ve never watched a more informative and revealing documentary about Hollywood actors. (HBO Max only)
