Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward were married at the El Rancho Vegas in 1958. The wedding was held in the suite of (and completely paid for by) the casino's owner at the time, Beldon Katleman. The couple waited for Newman's divorce from his first wife to be final before they headed to Las Vegas to be married in January 1958. After the marriage ceremony, they headed for London, England and honeymooned in the London’s Connaught Hotel.

After their marriage, over the course of the next five decades, Newman and Woodward lived and worked together making critically acclaimed and commercially successful movies. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in January 2008. Later that year, Newman was set to direct a stage production of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men at the Westport Country Playhouse in Westport, Connecticut, where Woodward was the artistic director. He withdrew from the production in June, citing health reasons. It was later reported that he had been diagnosed with lung cancer. Newman died on September 26, 2008, at the age of 83.

Today, Joanne Woodward is still working; she was the voice of Doris in the 2013 film, Lucky Them, an American comedy-drama film directed by Megan Griffiths.
