Four years after their insanely successful pairing in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, steely-eyed heartthrobs Paul Newman and Robert Redford reteamed for director George Roy Hill’s multi-Academy Award-winning (including Best Picture) Depression-era tale of two professional grifters out to “sting” an Irish mob boss. Co-starring Robert Shaw, Eileen Brennan and Charles Durning, and featuring the Marvin Hamlisch-tweaked Scott Joplin composition “The Entertainer” (which made it into the Billboard Top Ten), this brilliantly twisty tale of set-ups, slight-of-hand, and sinfully attractive con-men remains one of the greatest American movies ever made.
