The Masterpiece That Propelled Newman to Stardom!
|Newman is a top-notch pool hustler who gets cocky and challenges Gleason''s Minnesota Fats to the match of his life.|
"...so much better than Martin Scorsese's belated sequel The Color of Money that they don't even belong in the same category. Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Newman is outstanding...in this incisive film. Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide
"Dingy atmosphere and great performances make this a standout. Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Rivetingly atmospheric, and exquisitely photographed. VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever
Editor's NoteAn arrogant and amoral hustler haunts pool rooms to get a crack at bringing down Minnesota Fats. When he starts to have real feelings for a woman, he's faced with a dilemma. See THE COLOR OF MONEY, an excellent sequel made 25 years later, for which Newman won Best Actor. Academy Award Nominations: 9, including Best Picture; Best Director; Best Actor, Paul Newman; Best Adapted Screenplay.
