To turn herself from a drab type into a glamour girl in a new movie, Joanne Woodward goes through a beauty treatment on April 17, 1963, which at times looks like a torture endurance test. In the film, ?New Kind of Love,? she plays the part of a New York buyer who goes to Paris on a buying trip. There she meets a sports columnist, played by her real-life husband, Paul Newman, who inspires the glamour bit. Of course it?s all imaginary film stuff-except that the beauty treatment is given in a salon supposed to be a duplicate of a real one, deluxe as they come. You wouldn?t go through all this even if you had the time and the money -- or would you? In what looks the salon?s torture chamber, set up in the Hollywood studio, Joanne Woodward lies on a bed as she gets the works. Wired as if for electrocution, she receives muscle relaxing pulsations through electrodes as three beauticians work with various devices. Joanne wears goggles to protect her eyes from lamps which surround her as part of the glamour treatment. (AP Photo/Don Brinn)
