A look back at the AFI's 1998 and 2007 "100 Years, 100 Movies" Top 100 Lists…..and a lot more!
Rated R because we cursed 3 or 4 times.
The 107th installment of the Next 100 Project is Paul Newman at his early-60’s peak. Patricia Neal and Melvyn Douglas won Oscars for their strong performances (ol’ Paulie News did not) and Brandon de Wilde is pretty good too. The story is really about his character, come to think of it. Anyway, Martin Ritt’s cattle tale is terrific in every way (the script, James Wong Howe’s cinematography, everything). Before you hear us blather, lope on over to Sparkplug Coffee and rope yourself a 10% discount by using the code “Top100Project”.
FOR THE RECORD: Ryan somehow forgot to mention Cool Hand Luke when discussing Newman’s best performances. It’s right there up with his work in The Hustler & Hud.
