Paul Newman

That’s Paul Newman behind the camera on the set of his directorial debut Rachel, Rachel (1968) starring his wife Joanne Woodward. I was a bit disappointed with this film upon viewing this over the holidays. I was hoping for more of a Cassavetes vibe, but Newman (truly one of my favorite actors) simply didn’t have the soul to make it work. Makes me question whether there’s a difference between actor’s intellect and director’s intellect. My gut says there is. I’m going to seek out his second directorial effort Sometimes A Great Notion (1970) next to see if he found his way.
