The Young Philadelphians (1959) -Paul Newman screen magic on Billie Burke, Robert Vaughn, Barbara Rush and Alexis Smith!

I always look forward to the next TCM showing of my favorite Paul Newman flick The Young Philadelphians (1959) — He gives rich Billie Burke (Glinda in The Wizard of Oz) smart tax advice while petting her lap dog, defends much underrated actor Robert Vaughn (in a striking Oscar nominated performance here) of a murder charge with sting like cunning, wows beauties Barbara Rush and Alexis Smith with his Paul Newman blue eyes and proves to be a great son to his audience only knowing father, Brain Keith. Watch the Paul Newman eyes explode with even greater intensity when he learns the revealing fact (known to us in the audience) that his father is really regular guy Mike Flanagan (Brian Keith) and not the high society William Lawrence II (Adam West).
