Trivia / The Sting

  • Dawson Casting: One of the few complaints about the movie was that Redford seemed too old to be playing a rookie character like Hooker.
  • Dueling-Stars Movie: It stars Paul Newman and Robert Redford. Need we say more?
  • Reality Subtext: Robert Shaw, who plays Doyle Lonnegan, injured his knee just before the shooting began. He incorporated the resulting limp into his performance.
