How many Films did Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward Star in Together?

Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman had one of the longest-standing marriages in ‘Hollywood’ (although they lived in Connecticut for quite some time)… The couple met early on in their Broadway careers when Newman was still married to first wife Jacqueline E. Witte. Promptly after his wife granted him a divorce, he married Woodward in Las Vegas. They were married for a little over 50 years — from January 29, 1958 until Paul’s death on September 26, 2008. Over the course of their 50+ year relationship, they worked together in film numerous times, either starring together, or as director/producer and actress…

    In the film “From the Terrace” , it was an interesting twist that Paul Newman ended up with the raven haired beauty, Natalie, instead of his real life wife, Joanne Woodward.
    I liked that Joanne Woodward played the mother of Tom Hanks in the film “Philadelphia”.

    The best couple ever, Paul Newman and Joanne.
    Best actors ever, Paul Newman and Joanne
    I want the name of two movies, made for television with Paul and Joanne;
    #1. Paul’s character desired a different live style than his up-bringing. Left home, end up working for a man whose daughter (Joanne) his character fell in love.
    #2. JoAnn’s character had to leave her child because she was too unstable to care for her.
    I want to see these moved again and again Please tell me how!
