Joanne Woodward talks about the early days of her career. Before going to New York, Woodward temporarily worked as a secretary for Albert Quigley. Upon arriving in New York, Woodward first went to Neighborhood Playhouse, where she studied from Sandy Meisner and Martha Graham. In those days in New York, all T.V. shows were done live. Woodward was also an understudy with Paul Newman during their days at Broadway. She would eventually find herself in California. Woodward ultimately turned down the invitation to become a member of the “Four Star Playhouse” show. Instead she was signed on to do three independent films. She briefly talks about how stressful her career became after winning an academy award.
