On a personal note, I simply wanted to thank you for your incredible work in creating and releasing “The Last Movie Stars.” That’s all I had hoped for when we started working on the script. But it turned out to be much more than that. You are making a fantastic impact on my life as well as many other people’s lives through this . The book’s focus on the business aspects of North American exhibition will be appealing to fans of Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, and 20th-century American acting, film, theater, and politics. Newman, of course, was a sought-after leading man in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s before eventually gaining the respect he deserved as an actor. Despite the fact that his wife Woodward had early critical acclaim (Newman, to her credit, was her greatest supporter), he felt inferiority about it. While Woodward became a fading memory, Newman became one of the most famous people on the planet, attracting what a wife would regard to be undesirable attention from females. While Woodward grew increasingly unable to secure major parts in movies that Newman wasn’t linked to, he remained a box-office star into his seventies.
For a never-finished personal history project, the project relies heavily on transcripts of recordings of interviews Woodward and Newman conducted with screenwriter Stewart Stern (of “Rebel Without a Cause” and the Woodard-Newman classic “Rachel, Rachel”). Because he had destroyed most of the recordings, Newman deleted all of them, leaving only a few that were unusable. Hawke therefore assigned contemporary actors to read the salvaged transcripts in order to preserve authenticity. Based on the book by Janny Scott, this historical drama traces the political and personal struggles of Gore Vidal (Clooney) and his wife Nina (Linney), based on their early years together in Hollywood. The film is set against the backdrop of culture wars between right-wingers and leftists in L.A., which Vidal was.

The final product is a mix of both. It’s as if a radio play or podcast had been set to film clips from the stars’ films and period-appropriate documentary footage of Hollywood, New York, and other cities. Occasionally, we’ll come across images from Woodward and Newman’s family photo albums, bits of home movies, and snippets of Hawke and the voice-actors discussing the material via Zoom (Hawke started production during the early stages of the Covid-19 epidemic).
The six-part series chronicles the characters’ progression from their initial appearance together on the same New York stage (while they were already dating, even though Newman was still married to. After she vanished, he married his third wife (Jackie Witte) throughout the final years of their lives. “The Last Movie Stars” follows the evolution of cinema throughout history. Along the road, it examines how changes in society have impacted the movie business. The book also touches on all of the major high points, from Woodward and Newman’s best-known stage and screen performances (including Woodward’s Oscar for “Rachel, Rachel” and Newman’s belated attention for “The Color of Money”) to their political civil rights activism and ventures into race car driving and gourmet food products (Newman’s eldest.
The strain on the marriage caused by Newman’s celebrity and drinking, as well as self-destructive patterns, or the many tragic events they endured together, including Scott Newman’s 1978 death of a drug overdose, which prompted them to establish the Scott Newman Center for addiction treatment. It’s fascinating to hear all of Newman’s offspring talk so frankly about him and Woodward, from their apparently insatiable sexual desires (for additional seclusion, their bedroom had two doors) to the unsavory beginnings of the marriage (when I think about my mother,” says Stephanie Newman. “But it isn’t the only thing I’m feeling.
The story of the series is most unique and affecting when it focuses on the difficulties in a marriage between two gifted and well-known artists who had numerous children and stepchildren despite not being cut out for the position. She told Stern, “I’m not a natural mother,” and, “I wish the kids understood that even though they were all loved, if I had it to do again, I wouldn’t have had children. Actors aren’t good parents.”
“The Last Movie Stars” looks at Tom Newman’s quiet demeanor and his relative emotional shut-off, in connection with his family, wife, friends, and relatives. Acting unlocked something in Newman that was imprisoned when the lights weren’t on him. He didn’t shed a tear for anyone or anything until his daughter Nell was born. He established a screen persona in the 1960s that was nothing like the actual individual. He stated on Stern, “Joanne brought forth a sexual being” when she married him, and “Newman as sexual spectacle was created.”
