As everybody knows, she is the real-life wife of Paul Newman. Even though there might have been some
influence of her husband Paul Newman for her becoming a famous actress (actually I don't know if so), there is
no doubt in that she is one of the most reliable and steady actresses of her age. She won the best actress Academy
Award for "The Three Faces of Eve"(1957), and nominated for several other movies, which include "Rachel,
Rachel" (1968) that was directed by his husband Paul Newman himself. As I think this movie is slightly sluggish
and monotonous even though it should be allowed for that the issue handled in this movie is exactly such a monotonous
life, Newman's first time direction must have been saved by his wife's performance.
