(Robert Rossen, 1961). Solid and moody, this adult drama provided old lefty Robert Rossen a comeback of sorts; it also gave Paul Newman a memorable turn as a beautiful loser, the virtuoso pool shark Fast Eddie. Theres a great cameo by Jackie Gleason as Eddies nemesis Minnesota Fats and a terrifying turn by George C. Scott as his banker.
