Fast Eddie Felson is the best young pool player around, but whenever he goes into a bar, he pretends to be a clueless beginner until the big money is on the table - and only then does he suddenly reveal his skill. There comes a day, though, when Eddie has to stop fleecing suckers and take on the legendary champion Minnesota Fats. So, will he be as slick with the cue then? With a brilliantly cool performance from star Paul Newman as Fast Eddie, The Hustler is one of the great sports movies.
This sprightly, stylish movie, set in Chicago in the 1930s, follows a pair of confidence tricksters as they pull off the biggest job of their careers.
