Newman & Redford

Paul Newman and Robert Redford are my two reasons for watching this. I don’t recall seeing such astonishing, mind-blowing performances.

The witty dialogue, the soundtrack, the themes of loyalty and deception are the other reasons.

The Sting is an ideal example of a fun, forgettable comedy. It's reasonably entertaining, it's pretty clever, and it's well acted. It's no masterpiece, and the twists and characters may feel overused now, but The Sting is still a decent way to spend 2 hours.

I always felt that scripting a movie that focuses on a successful elaborate con-job really requires an exercizing of creativity from the writer. Bringing in all the elements of the characters & acts to pull off a scheme that is both credible in it's enactment & at the same time fascinating in it's grand unfolding is a balancing act on a extremely narrow margin.
This was one of the 1st. ones... read more

Description: Johnny Hooker is a young con-man who is being taught by Luther. One day they pull one of their con jobs and net themselves a huge roll. What they don't know is that the man they conned is the courier for a numbers runner. And it turns out that the boss, Doyle Lonigan, considers it an attack on him and orders all the people involved terminated. Hooker is shaken down by a crooked cop, Snyder, who threatens to turn him over to Lonigan unless he pays him off. Hooker pays him, he then tries to warn Luther but is too late. He then goes to see Henry Gondorf, a friend of Luther's and a one time great con-man, who has had a bit of bad lu ... (more)

"“A wonderful movie. It very much looks like the 1930s re-created on film. The costumes by Edith Head are great…. What’s amazing is that Newman and Redford made only two films together, but that pair of movies has forever linked the actors as if they were a prolific team, such as Bob Hope and Bing Crosby or Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon.” - Robert Osbourne "
