Sloyan Charles Dierkop Floyd Bodyguard Lee Paul Edit Storyline Johnny Hooker, a small time grifter, unknowingly steals from Doyle Lonnegan, a big time crime boss, when he pulls a standard street con.

Edit Did You Know? The day after he finished reading the script, Shaw reportedly said to Newman, "Delicious. When do I start?

Goofs The conductor announces the poker game to be Straight Poker, but what they actually play is Draw Poker. Straight Poker has no draws.

Quotes Henry Gondorff : You have to keep this con even after you take his money. He can't know you took him. Crazy Credits The opening animated logo for Universal Pictures is in s style, matching the movie's setting, instead of the s version.

Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Report this. Ward has said in an interviews that he was inspired to write The Sting while doing research on pickpockets, saying, "Since I had never seen a film about a confidence man before, I said I gotta do this.

They don't have to know how a scheme works, and they don't mind a twist or two, but it's important for the story to feature clearly recognizable 'good' and 'bad' characters.

He also imagined an underground brotherhood of thieves who assemble for a big operation and then melt away after the "mark".

Rob Cohen later director of action films such as The Fast and the Furious years later told of how he found the script in the slush pile when working as a reader for Mike Medavoy , a future studio head, but then an agent.

Universal bought it that afternoon, and Cohen keeps the coverage framed on the wall of his office. David Maurer sued for plagiarism, claiming the screenplay was based too heavily on his book The Big Con , about real-life tricksters Fred and Charley Gondorff.

Ward, who claimed he had used many nonfiction books as research material and had not really plagiarized any of them. Ward originally wrote Henry Gondorff as a minor character who was an overweight, past-his-prime slob, but once Paul Newman became associated with the movie, Gondorff was rewritten as a slimmer character and his part was expanded in order to maximize the second partnership of Newman and Redford.

Newman had been advised to avoid doing comedies because he didn't have the light touch, but accepted the part to prove that he could handle comedy just as well as drama.

Newman needed a hit considering his last five films that he had made prior to The Sting had been box-office disappointments. Much to her relief, Newman had sent the script to Robert Shaw while shooting The Mackintosh Man in Ireland to ensure his participation in the film.

Philips's book asserts that Shaw was not nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award because he demanded that his name follow those of Newman and Redford before the film's opening title.

Shaw's character's limping in the film was authentic. Shaw had slipped on a wet handball court at the Beverly Hills Hotel a week before filming began and had injured the ligaments in his knee.

He wore a leg brace during production which was hidden under the wide s style trousers. Hill decided that the film would be reminiscent of movies from the s and watched films from that decade for inspiration.

While studying '30s gangster films, Hill noticed that most of them rarely had extras. So I deliberately avoided using extras.

Along with art director Henry Bumstead and cinematographer Robert L. Surtees , Hill devised a colour scheme of muted browns and maroons for the film and a lighting design that combined old-fashioned s-style lighting with some modern tricks of the trade to get the visual look he wanted.

One of them was his own one-of-a-kind Pierce-Arrow , which served as Lonnegan's private car. As of August , it is the 20th highest-grossing film in the United States adjusted for ticket price inflation.

One forgives its unrelenting efforts to charm, if only because The Sting itself is a kind of con game, devoid of the poetic aspirations that weighed down Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Ward's finely-crafted story of multiple deception and surprise ending will delight both mass and class audiences. Extremely handsome production values and a great supporting cast round out the virtues.

It creeps cranking on, section after section, and it doesn't have a good spirit. In , the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

The Writers Guild of America ranked the screenplay 39 on its list of Greatest Screenplays ever written. The film won seven Academy Awards and received three other nominations.

The soundtrack album, executive produced by Gil Rodin , included several Scott Joplin ragtime compositions, adapted by Marvin Hamlisch.

According to Joplin scholar Edward A. Berlin , ragtime had experienced a revival in the s due to several separate, but coalescing events:.

Inspired by Schuller's recording, Hill had Hamlisch score Joplin's music for the film, thereby bringing Joplin to a mass, popular public. There are some variances from the film soundtrack, as noted.

Joplin's music was no longer popular by the s, although its use in The Sting evokes the s gangster movie The Public Enemy , in which Joplin's music appeared.

The album sequence differs from the film sequence, a standard practice with vinyl LPs, often for aesthetic reasons.

Some additional content differences:. Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis music and lyrics , writer Bob Martin , and director John Rando created a stage musical version of the movie.

Its "making of" featurette, The Art of the Sting , included interviews with cast and crew. The film was released on Blu-ray in , as part of Universal's th anniversary releases.

Lonnegan demands satisfaction for the insult. After his partner, Luther, is killed, Hooker flees, and seeks the help of Henry Gondorff, one of Luther's contacts, who is a master of the long con.

Hooker wants to use Gondorff's expertise to take Lonnegan for an enormous sum of money to even the score, since he admits he "doesn't know enough about killing to kill him.

The stakes are high in this game, and our heroes must not only deal with Lonnegan's murderous tendencies, but also other side players who want a piece of the action.

To win, Hooker and Gondorff will need all their skills Written by headlessannie. The fix is in, the odds are set, and the boys are ready to play for the big time, both on the screen and behind the camera in this breezy, endlessly entertaining movie classic.

Robert Redford is small-time hustler Johnny Hooker, happy to play the marks in Joliet until the murder of his mentor pushes him to go up against the nastiest mug in Chicago, Doyle Lonnegan Robert Shaw.

Hooker'd rather ice Lonnegan outright, but will settle for a big con with the help of a slightly wobbly but game scammer named Henry Gondorff, played as only Paul Newman can.

And so they did. Comparing "The Sting" to "Butch Cassidy" is kind of overdone sport, and tempers, as Lonnegan would say, run hot.

But you can see why "The Sting" worked as well as it did by looking at how the director and the stars played it differently within the same basic framework as "Butch Cassidy.

Period detail abounds here as it did with "Butch Cassidy," and there's another memorable score amid the proceedings, Scott Joplin rags modernized by Marvin Hamlisch.

In "Butch Cassidy," Newman and Redford's comradeship was the story. Here, the chemistry between the two actors is minimized in favor of spinning a yarn with enough red herrings to feed the Swedish navy.

The tale here is better than "Butch Cassidy," which is a more elegiac film with grander cinematography and funnier set pieces. You can't really call "The Sting" a comedy.

Though there are many laughs, especially when Newman hooks Shaw during a poker game, Hill won't let the audience relax enough for that. What this is is a con game, played on the audience, designed not to cheat but entertain by means of clever hoodwinking and constant misdirection plays.

You'll get no spoilers from me. This is one worth sitting through with no expectations. Hand himself, Ray Walston.

The best performance may be Robert Shaw's; he exudes menace aplenty but some humanity, too, when he takes Hooker under his wing after learning he came from the same hard streets of Five Points Lonnegan sprang from.

Terrific period detail, too. The dialogue is great and feels real in its Runyonesque way, while the cons are elaborate and logically played out.

Watching this a second time is especially fun because once you know how the plot goes down, you find yourself catching clues you missed the first time, and enjoying the film even more for them.

Why didn't Newman and Redford team up again? Certainly there was another good movie for them to partner up in, but as Gondorff would have put it, only chumps don't quit when they're ahead.

A mysterious figure with black leather gloves is then seen following and observing Hooker. Kelly's connection appears effective, as Harmon provides Lonnegan with the winner of one horse race and the trifecta of another.

Polk forces Hooker to betray Gondorff by threatening to incarcerate Luther Coleman's widow. The night before the sting, Hooker sleeps with a waitress named Loretta.

The next morning, he sees Loretta walking toward him. The black-gloved man appears behind Hooker and shoots her dead. She was Lonnegan's hired killer, Loretta Salino, and had not yet killed him because they were seen together.

The gunman was hired by Gondorff to protect Hooker. As the race begins, Harmon arrives and expresses shock at Lonnegan's bet: when he said "place it" he meant, literally, that Lucky Dan would "place" i.

In a panic, Lonnegan rushes the teller window and demands his money back. A moment later Polk, Lt. Snyder, and a half dozen FBI agents storm the parlor.

Polk confronts Gondorff, then tells Hooker he is free to go. Gondorff, reacting to the betrayal, shoots Hooker in the back. Polk then shoots Gondorff and orders Snyder to get the ostensibly respectable Lonnegan away from the crime scene.

With Lonnegan and Snyder safely away, Hooker and Gondorff rise amid cheers and laughter. The gunshots were faked; Agent Polk is actually Hickey, a con man, running a con atop Gondorff's con to divert Snyder and ensure Lonnegan abandons the money.

As the con men strip the room of its contents, Hooker refuses his share of the money, saying "I'd only blow it", and walks away with Gondorff.
