Stories from The Sting

June 5th, 2012  |  Published in Spotlight

There are some terrific tales from the making of the classic film – and one of my all-time favourites –¬†The Sting.

It’s one of the all-time classic ways to finish a movie…

“You’re right, Henry. It’s not enough.

But it’s close.”

Those immortal last lines from Robert Redford’s street hustler Johnny Hooker to Paul Newman’s ace conman at the end of their marvellous takedown of the corrupt Robert Shaw’s Doyle Lonergan, memorably close George Roy Hill’s magnificent¬†The Sting.

And in this article from the very cool Guardian series, producer Michael Phillips and Oscar winning screenwriter David S Ward recount some extraordinary stories – including the casting of Paul Newman, Robert Redford and Robert Shaw – from the making of this iconic 1973 movie. Have a read.
