Movie Summary

Paul Newman scores as tragic, flawed pool hustler "Fast Eddie Felson" in a brooding drama that explores the synergies between good and evil, love and desperation. Felson tours the country hustling games -- even challenging reigning champion Minnesota Fats (a fabulous Jackie Gleason). Co-starring Piper Laurie and George C. Scott, The Hustler was followed 30 years later by the sequel The Color of Money, starring Newman and Tom Cruise. Rack 'em up!moreless
