The Newman-Woodwards: The Gold Standard

Proving it can be done: Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward were married and worked together for fifty years! A lasting union containing 'correct amounts of lust and respect' their marriage was also solidified by their desire to remain out of the Hollywood spotlight and reside quietly together in Connecticut.

They appeared together in ten featured films:

The Long, Hot Summer (1958)
Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys! (1958)
From the Terrace (1960)
Paris Blues (1961)
A New Kind of Love (1963)
Winning (1969)
WUSA (1970)
The Drowning Pool (1975)
Harry & Son (1984) - (directed by Newman)
Mr. and Mrs. Bridge (1990)

Woodward starred in five films that Newman directed or produced but in which he did not star:

Rachel, Rachel (1968)
They Might Be Giants (1971)
The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds - which featured their daughter, Nell Potts (1972)
The Shadow Box (1980) - (television movie)
The Glass Menagerie (1987)
