This is a peculiar year to me. Paul Newman would have seemed like an obvious choice, especially seeing as how I always found Schell to be more of a supporting character. Would love to hear some thoughts on this.
I think the subject matter of JUDGEMENT coupled with
the role that Schell played made him a very easy choice
for the academy….NEWMAN IMO, was the best giving
one of the great performances of his career…but a movie
about a lowlife pool shark and the people around him
couldnt compete with Nazi atrocities..
its a pity that Newman needed to wait 25 more years
for his oscar for an inferior carbon copy of the older
the other 2 guys were lucky to be nominated..I always found
Charles Boyer to be a bad actor…
