Winner of 7 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, The Sting stars Paul Newman and Robert Redford as two con men in 1930s Chicago. After a friend is killed by the mob, they try to get even by attempting to pull off the ultimate ‘sting.’ No one is to be trusted as the twists unfold, leading up to one of the greatest double-crosses in movie history. The con is on!
This double-disc (plus digital copy) set is part of Universal's 100th-anniversary series honoring its crown jewels, and it comes as no surprise that The Sting, a multi-Oscar winner from 1973, is among the gems. The actual extras in the package are glitzy but relatively scant: a fun 45-page booklet, an hour-long Art of the Sting documentary carried over from previous DVD editions (it includes amusing interviews with Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and Marvin Hamlisch), and three new featurettes (10 minutes or so each) on the Universal back lot, the 1970s at Universal, and the studio's restoration project, all of which play like fast-moving commercials for the other titles in this anniversary series. No commentaries. The Blu-ray disc looks as crisp as a '73 film could, and--if anything--shows Universal's tendency toward making their discs overly clean in the transfer process. Because the look of the film was always more nostalgic design than visual art, this doesn't harm the overall experience. --Robert Horton
One of the 20 best movies of all time. Newman and Redford are impossibly cool and good looking. We hadn't watched it for a couple of decades and it was just as good now as it was... Read morePublished 1 day ago by John H Mueller
