THE COLOR OF MONEY
1986, Buena Vista Pictures, 119 min, USA, Dir: Martin Scorsese

Paul Newman took home a long overdue Best Actor Oscar for reprising his role as pool shark Fast Eddie Felson in this follow-up to 1961’s THE HUSTLER. Here Fast Eddie returns to the game to show a talented younger player (Tom Cruise) how to work the tables for money, and - in a final match between teacher and student - how to sink the shots that really count. With Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio. Edited by Thelma Schoonmaker.
