The Sting
1973
****
Director: George Roy Hill
Cast: Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Robert Shaw, Charles Durning, Ray Walston

Paul Newman and Robert Redford have great chemistry in the lead as two petty conmen who join forces to pull off their biggest scam yet. It’s all very entertaining, but it’s hard to comprehend how this rather trivial film managed to win seven Oscars. Memorable ragtime music on the soundtrack.
