The Hustler Blu-Ray Book Review



Synopsis: With his boyish grin and laid-back good looks, Fast Eddie Felson has fleeced his share of pool-hall gamblers. Now the brash pool shark is after the king of the cue stick: Minnesota Fats. But after losing to Fats in a grueling, 36-hour match, Eddie hits the skids. Only the intervention of a ruthless gambler, who stakes his claim to Eddie's soul, can teach this hustler the cruel art of winning.

Review: The Hustler is a vintage classic film starring Paul Newman about a pool shark.  The film is an absolute gem in film history and is now on blu-ray for the first time.  It has an attached book that has some trivia and info about the film.  The transfer into blu-ray high definition is fantastic.  It really provides some great clarity in the picture over the DVD.

Special features include audio commentary by Paul Newman, Life In The Fast Lane, Swimming With Sharks: The Art of the Hustle, The Hustler: The Inside Story, Milestones In Cinema History, Paul Newman: Hollywood’s Cool Hand, Trick Shot Analysis with Mike Massey, How To Make The Shot with Mike Massey. Never before seen special features include Paul Newman At Fox Documentary, Jackie Gleason: The Big Man Documentary and The Real Hustler: Walter Tevis Documentary.

Interest Range: Vintage Film
