Tune in to TCM: Newman's Own

In honor of the late great Paul Newman, Turner Classic Movies is devoting a whole day of programming tomorrow in tribute to the Academy Award winning screen legend.

Films scheduled to be screened during the 24-hour marathon include Alfred Hitchcock's Torn Curtain, Otto Preminger's Exodus and Robert Wise's Somebody Up There Likes Me, plus Newman's two Tennessee Williams' film adaptations, Sweet Bird of Youth and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The latter netted the actor his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor; subsequent nominations included Hud and Cool Hand Luke, as well as his Best Picture nominated directorial debut, Rachel, Rachel, all of which will also screen tomorrow beginning at 6:00 AM EST.
