Newman always greatReviewed in Canada on 29 September 2014
Some of the Newman films I had never seen. All were worth seeing as an overview of the variety of his work. The Young Philadelphians is of course the best of those in this collection.
A True Rebel Hero For The AgesReviewed in Canada on 13 June 2012
What more can be said about Paul Newman? Grit,grace,and style.....His contribution to American cinema can't go unnoticed. The collection here includes films that have been reletively forgotten. Yet,his 'persona' bravura' carry his portrayls to a different level.

Great collection.Reviewed in Canada on 2 January 2013
This was bought for my mother-in-law who is a Paul Newman fan and she liked that there was a collective set.
Cool Hand Luke As Billy The KidReviewed in the United States on 26 September 2008
Directed by Arthur Penn, 1958, THE LEFT HANDED GUN, is the story of Billy the Kid, alias William Bonney, the kids real name Henry McCarty, as Paul Newman portrays the outlaw true to realistic, yet in the Newman way which makes Paul Newman an exceptional actor, at some points in the movie, you get the feeling Newman's a New York thug or reminiscent of his great role as Rocky Graciano in, "Somebody Up There Likes Me", adding the rebellious ingredient for the part of Bonney as a young desperado trying to grasp the meaning of life and death, while searching for the revenge of his mentor's murderers, at the same time running and hiding from the law. This film is partly truth and partly fiction and also making his directional debut, Arthur Penn, director of "Bonnie and Clyde", showcases a young Paul Newman on the top of his game and an adequate supporting cast, this is a Warner Bros. DVD, black and white, full screen or 16x9 anamorphic widescreen, at a cheap reasonable price, a forgotten western classic.

Very happy with this set.Reviewed in the United States on 16 November 2006
Warners has been doing stand-up service; this is reasonably priced the extras are fine, the transfers are excellent, and even the weakest movie in this set (MACKINTOSH MAN) is an efficient genre picture with some offbeat locations, so I'll return to it even if it isn't a masterpiece. While the set may be short on Newman classics (a la THE HUSTLER, THE VERDICT, etc.), all the film are highly watchable; THE LEFT-HANDED GUN, an Arthur Penn film, is quite underrated, and POCKET MONEY is a funny change-of-pace. HARPER and DROWNING POOL are well-made old-school detective flicks; I actually like DROWNING POOL a bit better than HARPER, due to its New Orleans locations and Walter Hill's script, but HARPER is a classic of sorts. If you think you'll like it, you will.
