The Hustler

Sunday, Jan 16, 2011

World premiere of restored print by 20th Century Fox Dir. Robert Rossen. 1961, 134 mins. Paul Newman is Fast Eddie, the brash pool hustler who drifts through seedy nocturnal cityscapes until meeting his match in Jackie Gleason’s Minnesota Fats. Eugen Shüfftan’s Oscar-winning CinemaScope photography has never looked better.
