In the past few years, posters for the Cannes Film Festival have been paying tribute to actresses, with Juliette Binoche, Faye Dunaway and Marilyn Monroe all taking center stage. But in 2013, it's a classic cinema couple who get the spotlight for the 66th installment of the festival.

In the past few years, posters for the Cannes Film Festival have been paying tribute to actresses, with Juliette Binoche, Faye Dunaway and Marilyn Monroe all taking center stage. But in 2013, it's a classic cinema couple who get the spotlight for the 66th installment of the festival.

Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward kiss on the new poster for the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The pair bucked Hollywood's tradition of fast romance; they first met in 1953, were married in 1958 and stayed that way until Newman's death in 2008. They made ten movies together, while Newman directed his wife in five pictures as well, and the image on the poster -- taken during the filming of Melville Shavelson's 1963 film "A New Kind Of Love" -- perfectly captures their enduring appeal to each other and to audiences. The Cannes connection for the pair comes with their first film together, Martin Ritt's 1958 effort "The Long Hot Summer," which screened in competition on the Croisette.

All around, a great poster for the festivities this year. The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 15-26.
