Robert Rossen's The Hustler, the classic 1961 Robert Rossen (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this film) pool-hall billiards gambling cheating romantic sports melodrama ("A motion picture that probes the stranger... The pick-up... Why a man hustles for a buck or a place in the sun!"; "It probes the stranger... The pick-up... The savage realities..."; "It probes the stranger... the pick-up... the savage realities of life and love!"; "It delves without compromise into the hungers that lie deep within us all!"; "A searching look into the innermost depths of a woman's heart... And a man's desires!"; based on the novel by Walter Tevis; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; about a pocket billiards pool sports hustler's rise and fall; the best movie about gambling ever made!) starring Paul Newman (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; "Fast Eddie... The hustler - a strange past... An animal instinct!", as "Fast Edddie" Felson), Jackie Gleason (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; "Minnesota Fats... Give him the chance... And he'll buy your tomorrows!"; "as 'Minnesota Fats'"), Piper Laurie (nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award for this film; "Sarah... A bottle... Two glasses and a man's razor always in her room!", as Sarah Packard), George C. Scott (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film; "Bert... The angle guy... looking for a sucker!", as Bert Gordon), Myron McCormick (as Charlie Burns), Murray Hamilton (as Findley), Michael Constantine (as Big John), Stephan Gierasch (as Preacher), Clifford A. Pellow (as Turk Baker, the man who breaks Eddie's thumbs), Jake La Motta (in a cameo role as a bartender!), Carl York (as the "Young Hustler", in the thumb breaking scene), Vincent Gardenia (as the bartender in the opening sequence who is swindled), and Willie Mosconi (legendary real life pool champion, as Willie). Note that this movie captures professional gambling better than any other movie I know of (especially the best known poker movies, which have ludicrous scenes depicting straight flushes and the like). It especially gets the feeling of the amount of cheating and "hustling" involved in professional gambling!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: very good. The poster has creases across the center foldline (typical of all high gloss Italian photobustas of this era). There are also a few minor creases throughout the poster. There were three tack holes in the top border and someone placed tape on the back of two of them.
