Winner of seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, The Sting is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed films of all time. Set in the 1930's, this deftly made comedy-suspensor deals with the ambitous small-time crook (Robert Redford) and a veteran con man (Paul Newman) who seek revenge on a vicious crime lord (Robert Shaw) who murdered one of their brotherhood.
How this group of charlatans put "the sting"on their enemy makes for the greatest caper movie in history, complete with an amazing surprise finish. Directed by George Roy Hill. Written by David S. Ward.
