Paul Newman and Joann Woodward are my favorite Hollywood couple ever. They so obviously loved each other. Plus they were married to each other (although, okay, Newman was married to someone else when he met Woodward so it's not totally ideal) and stayed married to each other until death did them part. They were obviously a passionate couple, and I love their chemistry on film.
Paul Newman is a cocky super hot hottie who comes into town and flirts with super uptight Joann Woodward. (In movies, Paul Newman is often a cocky super hot hottie and Joann Woodward is often super uptight. I mean look at those bangs. She has some uptight bangs.)
Paul Newman is shirtless and sweats a lot in this film because, you know, it's a long hot summer.
When he is wearing some clothes, Newman looks fantastic -- all old hat and thin plaid shirt. The girls are '50s spectacular with their cinched waists and head scarves.
