Once again, Festival du Cannes is using classic movie stars to promote it’s upcoming European festival. An iconic couple: Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman in A New Kind of Love (1963) personify the spirit of cinema on the official 66th edition poster.
Woodward and Newman were married for many decades until his eventual passing in 2008. They both won Oscars for memorable performances; she for The Three Faces of Eve, and he for The Color of Money (the remake of The Hustler). Last year, a Marilyn Monroe photo was used to ring in the largest annual international film fest.
Bravo to the Festival du Cannes for their homage to classic cinema (the French word for motion picture). The event will be held from May 15th-26th.
