Episode 73: The Sting (1973)

 thestingPart two of our "Classic Bromance" episodes finds Robert Redford and Paul Newman together again, but this time in a completely different environment! It's the 1930s in Chicago, and con artists and grifters are all part of the day-to-day game. When young Johnny Hooker's (Redford) partner gets killed, he sets off to find Henry Gondorff (Newman), a veteran con man who can teach him what he needs to know to get his revenge by pulling off the greatest long con in history! Directed (again) by George Hill, written by David S. Ward, and featuring a truly epic supporting cast, including Robers Shaw, Charles Durning, Ray Walston, Eileen Brennan, Harold Gould, and Dana Elcar, this film won 7 of the 10 Academy Awards it was nominated for in 1974, and deservedly so! Plus, hear why 1977 is such a special year, and what films the trio have chosen to celebrate it with!
