Why Selling Leaves a Sting

Why Selling Leaves a Sting

In the 1973 classic ‘The Sting’ starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford we follow a group of con men, led by Newman’s character Henry Gondorf who is effectively the Yoda of the ‘long con’ and Johnny Hooker, a small time grifter played by Redford. Hooker and his partner Luther unwittingly run a con that upsets a big time criminal leading to Luther’s untimely death and a contract being placed on Hookers life. He flees and joins forces with Gondorf to avenge the killing of their friend. Together with a crack group of talented con artists they plan and stage the ultimate con.
