Color of Money, The (Beuna Vista 1986, Paul Newman, Tom Cruise)



Paul Newman reprises his Oscar-nominated role of Fast” Eddie Felsen from The Hustler (1961), in this sequel directed by Martin Scorsese.

Twenty-five years after being banned from big-time pool, Felsen now bankrolls talented pool hustlers for a percentage. His latest protege is Vincent Lauria (Tom Cruise), a talented but cocky sharpshooter who reminds Felsen of himself in the early years of his pool career. However, after a break between the old pro and his young student, the pair meet for a final showdown tournament in Atlantic City.”

Director Martin Scorsese usually sets his urban dramas in New York City, but The Color Of Money was filmed in Chicago, a city that is never named in the film. Scorsese chose to set the film in Chicago because he thought it had a more interesting variety of pool halls than New York.
