Apr 24, 2014Newman does Tennessee Williams very well and he does tremendously well in Sweet Bird of Youth. He is the ultimate hustler who meets obstacles that he can't overcome. Brilliant.John B Super Reviewer
Apr 28, 2011Sweet Bird of Youth is structured like a resurrection tale. Chance Wayne is thrown into all types of abasement, dragged this way and that, beaten to a bloody pulpy (figuratively, of course), and finally rises from the ashes, a new man.Jennifer X Super Reviewer
Jun 04, 2010Very underrated and a great story about vanity and the drawbacks of Hollywood. Paul Newman delivers his usual knockout performance, creating a very lovable and fun character that is also very realistic and heart felt. There's also a lot of other great performances thrown in, including Rip Torn as a deranged redneck out for blood. The story is so well put together by the greatest playwright to ever live, Tennessee Williams. I think the love story is so well done and put together in such a tragic way that the end result nearly drains you. The movie itself is really well put together and has some really beautiful sets and shots.Conner R Super Reviewer
Feb 14, 2010If you've been reading some of my reviews, you all know how much I like Paul Newman, but he failed to appease me this time. The whole story just wasn't that interesting. As a matter of fact, I don't think I have anything constructive to say about the movie. So I'll leave it at that. <div style="width:254px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/sweet-bird-of-youth-1962-paul-newman-in-sweet-bird-of-youth-11372629"><img src="http://content7.flixster.com/photo/11/37/26/11372629_gal.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com">Saskia D Super Reviewer
