Aro Favourite Hustler, The


USA 1961, 135 minutes, B/W
Dir. Robert Rossen

Aroview: Classic Paul Newman, playing a pool-shark with potential who gets into a match with the legendary Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason). George C Scott plays his nemesis, Piper Laurie his dipsomaniac girlfriend. Classic hardboiled poetry. Note: Newman played the same character in Scorcese’s THE COLOUR OF MONEY, some thirty years later.
