More on The Color of Money

Buena Vista Distribution

There’s a long stretch of The Color of Money — directed by Martin Scorsese — in which Newman’s Eddie and Cruise’s Vincent go from being partners to rivals, and you have no idea what kind of scam Eddie is running. It’s completely compelling.

Yes, Tom Cruise was the hot young actor when The Color of Money came out, and Paul Newman was the classic Hollywood icon — but you find yourself rooting for the older actor throughout.

Both The Hustler and The Color of Money are based on novels by Walter Tevis, who also wrote the novel that inspired the recent Netflix phenomenon The Queen’s Gambit.
