DVD Info: Fox to release 17 disc Paul Newman collection.

The press release caught my eye right away and sent my heart racing in anticapation.

Fox Home Entertainment has announced they will release THE PAUL NEWMAN TRIBUTE COLLECTION on Sept 22nd.

“Over the years, Newman worked with some of Hollywood’s most notable filmmakers,
three of which are highlighted in this collection including Otto Preminger’s
World War II drama Exodus, Newman’s two films with legendary director Robert
Altman, Buffalo Bill and the Indians Or Sitting Bull’s History Lesson and
Quintet, and three of his six collaborations with director Martin Ritt including
Hemingway’s Adventures of a Young Man, Hombre and Newman’s first big screen
feature with wife Joanne Woodward in The Long, Hot Summer. Rounding out
the collection is the Wall Street drama From The Terrace and the hilarious
comedies Rally ‘Round The Flag, Boys! and What A Way To Go! Newman also
received numerous Academy Award nominations throughout his career including his
stellar performances in The Hustler and The Verdict.”
