Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Robert Rossen. 1961, 134 mins. 35mm. With Jackie Gleason, Piper Laurie, George C. Scott. In one of his finest roles, Paul Newman is Fast Eddie, the brash pool hustler who drifts through seedy nocturnal cityscapes until meeting his match in Jackie Gleason’s Minnesota Fats. His self-destructive impulses also meet their match, in his rocky and tender relationship with Sarah (Laurie).
