The Color Of Money. What can I say, we all love it, we all need it, we can't survive without it. Money that is. Paul Newman and a very young Tom Cruise make magic on the screen. The only reason why this movie is the 2nd Best all time is because it came after the Paul Newman, Jackie Gleason 1960 film "Hustler". That movie is a love story with Pool as a vehicle of Fast Eddie Felson.
Eddie returns as a retired Pool Hustler who finds his new protege Tom Cruise one night by chance. The movie then speeds up showing the pair hitting the road to "hustle" on their way to a big tournament in Vegas. Tom Cruise character the young "Vincent" who is called a wonderful flake by Eddie in the movie then turns the tides and hustles his mentor during one of the final scenes.
Great acting in this movie and Paul Newman, a quite accomplished player himself does most of his own pool shooting during the movie.
As someone who grew up "Hustling" on the streets and pool hauls I can appreciate the fast money that can be made in gambling and "taking the other guys dough". This movie touches on that a bit. Pool Hall Junkies also invokes on this but at the end of that movie the main character strives to be a true professional of the game of pool and not just a "hustler".
Overall I give this movie 5 stars and if you like pool you will enjoy it. If you like Paul Newman you will enjoy it. And if you like the young Tom Cruise before the jumping on the couch of Oprah then you will like it!
I didn't like this movie years ago, when it first came out. I only paid attention to the pool playing and the hustle, which I thought were bogus. However, I saw it the other night on cable and realized this is a great movie, a great work of dramatic art. The acting, the directing, the writing, and the story are all excellent. The story is much richer and more complex than I remembered. Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio is superb. Of course, Paul Newman is great, as always. He's one of our great actors. And Marty Scorsese knows how to get the best out of his players. Wow. Stunning. I even liked Tom Cruise.
of acting in Color. However, Newman, Jackie Gleeson, and Piper Laurie made tor a classic
and very realistic film in black and white.
