Paul Newman heads a superb cast featuring Jackie Gleason, George C. Scott and Piper Laurie in this riveting film that received an Academy Award nomination as Best Picture of 1961 and brought all four of its stars Oscar nominations. Newman (Best Actor nominee) is electrifying as Fast Eddie Felson, an arrogant, amoral hustler who haunts back street pool rooms fleecing anyone who'll pick up a cue.
Determined to be acclaimed as the best, Eddies seeks out legendary Minnesota Fats (Gleason, Supporting Actor nominee), who's backed by Bert Gordon (Scott, Supporting Actor nominee). The love of a lonely woman (Laurie, Best Actress nominee) 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 Academy Awards, The Hustler is a dazzling cinematic triumph.
