The 90th Academy Awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, March 4, 2018.

This DVD set contains 13 of Newman’s best-loved classic films including "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (1969), "The Hustler" (1961)and "The Verdict" (1982) among others. All titles are listed below.
In the event of a tie, the grand prize winner will be selected randomly from the winning entries. Only one contestant will win the grand prize DVD set. The others, having tied for the grand prize, will receive a copy of Subconscious Lee.
