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.
The moody, smoky hustler's world is the setting for this film about a washed-up pool shark who starts mentoring a talented, cocky young player.
