Mine: Wonderfully complex plot. Great performances all around. It doesn't get any better than this.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Two small-time Chicago con-men try to put "the sting" on a high-roller from N. Y. C. (Shaw) after he has one of their pals killed. This long but entertaining film won seven Oscars, including Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay (David S. Ward), and sparked national revival of Scott Joplin`s ragtime music (arranged here by Oscar-winner Marvin Hamlisch). Sequel: THE STING II.

paul newman is hot! this movie was cool, but what was the deal with robert redford's character--how did he die and come back alive at the end? and why did he turn his best friend into the feds? love, kris
