THE HUSTLER
August 29, 2015  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
This 1961 movie is a smart, brooding character study showcasing three wonderful actors: Paul Newman (in a role he would reprise decades later, in 1986’s The Color of Money), George C. Scott (the star being saluted today on TCM’s “Summer Under the Stars”), and Jackie Gleason – in a fitting dramatic role, showing off his real-life skills with a pool cue.
