Summary
A riveting drama that won all four of its stars an Oscar nomination. Newman stars as Fast Eddie Felson, an arrogant, amoral hustler who haunts backstreet pool rooms fleecing anyone who'll pick up a cue. Then Eddie faces the legendary Minnesota Fats (Gleason), who's backed by Bert Gordon (Scott), a predatory, grasping gambler. Eddie could beat the champ, but defeats himself. At a low point, he meets Sarah (Laurie), a lonely, luckless woman who falls in love with him. They might be happy together, but Eddie won't stop until he triumphs over Minnesota Fats, even though he risks everything else in the process
