Set in Depression-era Chicago, director George Roy Hill’s action-packed and immensely entertaining heist film stars Robert Redford and Paul Newman as two con men who team up when one of them wants to avenge the death of his partner, a murderous swindler. Winner of seven 1973 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Director and Original Screenplay, The Sting also features an army of great character actors including Harold Gould and Ray Walston; gorgeous set designs by Henry Bumstead; and, of course, those lovely Scott Joplin rags. Rated PG.
