THe effect of Winning, an auto-racing drama, is so refreshingly graphic and intelligent that Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward have earned a long vacation, should they so choose.

Well of course he wins the race and gets the girl.

The racing sequences are fun to watch nut the family melodrama is rather dreary, despite the presence of Paul Newman and wife-actress Joanne Woodward.

The film goes nowhere except in circles.

The footage in the Indy race is of the awesome 17-car crackup that began the 1968 festivities. Its insertion lends the picture even greater authenticity.

Newman's knowledge and experience in top-class racing helped him identify with the Formula One racing driver he plays, and a genuine passion for the sport shines through those blue eyes.

Audience Reviews for Winning

Workaholic ("hiding from life") meets a small town single mom ("emotionally insatiable") and they get married. Wonder what she'll do when he's off overworking at the office ... with his "baby, he doesn't appreciate a beautiful girl like you" best friend? So goes the drama quotient here, kid stuff for Newman and Woodward, so what's the film about? Well, the office is a racetrack here, old school, Fords, Chevys, Pontiacs and Dodges, and tons of whack race footage. Me likey.

Excellent performers are stuck in this draggy inert drama. Both Newmans do their best and look great but this is a dull movie.
