Jan. 30, 1958
Update: This was an entry I did in January for the 50th wedding anniversary of Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman. I’m reposting it after learning that Newman has died.
Recognize these young movie stars? I read about lots of Hollywood marriages as I go through the old papers–and even more Hollywood divorces. So as Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward celebrate their 50th anniversary, I thought I’d run a few pictures from the early days.

Newman and Woodward–isn’t this a great picture? (Even though it’s unidentified). A reader tells me this is a scene in "From the Terrace."
