In portraying the game of billiards as much more than just hitting balls around, Robert Rossen and Dede Allen do for pool what Raging Bull later did for boxing. Paul Newman stars as a smalltime pool shark who wants nothing more than to challenge the great “Minnesota Fats” (Gleason) and break into the big time.
Double Feature with ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW
