Modesto Film Society presents:
The Hustler

Sun. Jan. 21

(NR-1961) 2 hrs. 14 Min. (Digital) In English

Declared a modern classic upon its 1961 release, Paul Newman stars as the eponymous pool hustler Fast Eddie Felson, a man on a mission to become the best professional hustler in the game. Co-starring Jackie Gleason as the legendary pool player Minnesota Fats, and Piper Laurie as the troubled Sarah Packard, The Hustler was nominated for nine Academy Awards (including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Actress in a Leading Role, and Best Director), of which it won two (including Best Cinematography). It also established Paul Newman as an acting force to be reckoned with, and is considered to be one of the best sports films of all time.
