Excellent Oscar-winning drama set in 1930s Illinois in which two con men set up an elaborate scheme or 'sting' to fleece a big-time crook in revenge for the killing of a friend.

Their ruse employs a whole line-up of con artists in setting up an establishment where the scam can take place which will involve serious money and, given their target, a serious risk. Winner of seven Oscars including Best Musical Adaptation for Scott Joplin's The Entertainer.
