Fast Eddie's Last Hustle
They'll talk of his cool, his looks, but to me what made him so special was that underneath the veneer was the most soulfully passionate American film actor of all time. Paul Newman never hid behind his cool or looks, and when he broke he broke honestly, with all of himself, for all the world to experience, the way we all do. More than a movie star, he was an actor. He did his job and he did it well.
This is the last scene from the film that made his career, "The Hustler," one of the best and most stylish coming of age movies ever made.
Ladies and Gentleman, "Fast" Eddie Felson, one last time...
"Fat Man, you shoot a great game of pool."
"So do you, Fast Eddie."
