Oscar Snubs – NEWMAN

OSCAR SNUBS ( PAUL NEWMAN - THE VERDICT )

PAUL NEWMAN in “THE VERDICT” ( 1982 )

He did a wonderful job as an alcoholic lawyer trying to sober up, find his self-worth, fight the system and win a big case for a wronged young couple. He’s rocky and unsteady as this down and ( almost ) out lawyer. The Color 0f Money was a consolation prize. Newman has played all manner of man ( boxer, racecar driver, male hustlerpool shark, hockey playerbusinessman, musicianS.0.B. ) but CineMaven’s verdict is for…“The Verdict.”
