Big Screen Duos
The big screen has sure had its share of famous duos. Hollywood really knows how to pick them. To name a few of the famous duos that we love and adore; Clark Gable and Carroll Lombard, Spencer Tracy and Katherine Hepburn, how about Lucy and Desi, and then there was Danny Glover and Mel Gibson who teamed up in Lethal Weapon. These actors teamed up to make many great classics, and there are so many more.
Their characters and personalities complimented each other to bring viewers into another world for a few hours. They made us laugh, cry, and they made us sit on the edge of our seats to see what happens next.
Paul Newman and Robert Redford teamed up to make only two movies, and what a shame because they worked so well together. At the time both actors were a hit with the ladies on the big screen.
The second move Newman and Redford made together was in 1973 “The Sting”. The movie takes place in 1936 during the Great Depression. Newman and Redford are teamed up as two con men. Their job is to con a mob boss played by Robert Shaw out of his money, as revenge for killing Redford’s partner.
After watching their first film together and the film “The Sting” I would have thought this would have been a long lasting duo for the big screen.
The first film that Paul Newman and a young Robert Redford made together was in 1969. This film was said to have launched Robert Redford’s career. Do you know what the name of the first film was that Newman and Redford made together?
