Description

Some say Paul Newman is the greatest actor of all time. Some say Martin Scorsese is the greatest director of all time. And some say "The Color of Money" is his greatest film. 

We are not those people.

But the Shat Crew is mature enough to appreciate a film with sets you can smell, jaw-dropping performances, and the magic of a young Tom Cruise. 

In this edition, we discuss how "The Color of Money" influenced other gambling movies ("Rounders," anyone?) and brought out Dick Ebert's inner detective. Ash explores the art of the hustle, and Gene defines the line between games and sports.

Throw in one of the '80s weirdest montages, an unexpected ending, and the ultimate question of money versus pride, and you'll see why this Academy Award-winning film can be both outstanding and outdated.

I'm not too sure that Francis Ford Coppolla would be delighted to discover that he did not, in fact, direct Godfather 2. From a film podcast? Really?
