The Sting (1973)

In this Depression-Era period, Best Picture-winning crime/comedy from director George Roy Hill:

  • the ragtime music of Scott Joplin on the soundtrack, and the "Saturday Evening Post"-styled title cards
  • the introduction of con artist Henry Gondorff/Mr. Shaw (Paul Newman) to Johnny Hooker/Kelly (Robert Redford): "Glad to meet you, kid, you're a real horse's ass"
  • the tricky "sting" heist that they orchestrated on racketeer mob boss Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw) in the film's conclusion
  • the last lines of dialogue: (Henry: "You not gonna stick around for your share?" Hooker: "Nah. I'd only blow it")
