    Luther Coleman ...

    was not played by James Earl Jones, but by his father, Robert Earl Jones, an important figure in the Harlem Renaissance.

    Couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewer

    I think this movie still plays out just as well today as it did in the 70's. The story, script, music, and of course, acting are all top-notch. The train scene with Paul Newman and Robert Shaw is a must see. And yes, the con is classic. Great movie from start to finish. Highly recommend it!

    Played Well in 1970's

    Movies such as Usual Suspects, Sneakers, Bandits and Memento owe a lot to The Sting. It was the original con movie with a twist, and at the time it was released, the ending was a real surprise. But movies released since the 1970's have made the movie-going audience so much more sophisticated about that kind of ending that The Sting doesn't work anymore the way it was originally intended to. Sad, but true. It moves much more slowly than the more current movies, and the ending is more or less predictable. It's still worth watching, though. The cast is wonderful and the actual con is classic.
