The masterpiece that propelled Newman to stardom!
Paul Newman heads a superb cast featuring Jackie Gleason, George C. Scott and Piper Laurie in this riveting film that received an Oscar nomination for Best Picture of 1961 and brought all four of its stars Oscar nominations. Newman is electrifying as Fast Eddie Felson, an arrogant, amoral hustler who haunts backstreet pool rooms fleecing anyone who'll pick up a cue. Determined to be acclaimed as the best, Eddie seeks out the legendary Minnesota Fats (Gleason), who's backed by Bert Gordon (Scott). The love of a lonely woman (Laurie) could turn Eddie's life around, but he won't rest until he bests Minnesota Fats, no matter what price he must pay. Voted one of the year's ten best by the New York Times and Time, and distinguished by two Oscars, The Hustler is a dazzling cinematic triumph.

"Rivetingly atmospheric, and exquisitely photographed.  VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever
"Newman is outstanding...  Leonard Maltin

An 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.

VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever 8 of 10
The original story of Fast Eddie Felsen and his adventures in the seedy world of professional pool. [Paul] Newman plays the naive, talented and self-destructive Felsen perfectly, Laurie is outstanding as his lover, and [Jackie] Gleason epitomizes the pool great Minnesota Fats. Rivetingly atmospheric, and exquisitely photographed.

Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide 9 of 10
Newman is outstanding as disenchanted drifter and pool hustler who challenges legendary Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason). Dingy pool-hall atmosphere vividly realized in this incisive film. - Leonard Maltin
