Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Robert Shaw... What names!

At that time, it wasn't just Hollywood stars. They were individuals, for which was followed by all. Film hill has become for them apotheosis in collaboration.

In 1973, charges in 000 156 million, really gorgeous.

Well as a rule, it's not only the money. The thing that the film is shot mocking gorgeous. We can say that this project laid the Foundation for the movies with "frauds, robberies and etc."

An exciting and intriguing plot. Great acting, which predates the current "figures of cinema"

the Film definitely is a classic.

Yes, they are really handsome. EVERYTHING!!! We have ALL team.

What suits, what's the acting, the plot. Young, beautiful and run fast. I watched this movie for the first time in the early appearance of VCRs. Made a lasting impression. One of my favorites. Not could not to write about him a couple of amenities.

Well this is need the fool does not fool any, but hardened wolf. Scam thought with a big way. Movie characters don't have spare money for construction of tote, the selection of qualified personnel for betting technique. And as Henry Gondorff (Paul Newman) was playing cards mother wolf Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). All at the hand of Henry. Even the shaking of train to be able to replace the card. Psychological line is developed with the beginning. Relax the enemy, to give him to get a trap. Here's task of light. The heroes of the film successfully. Aerobatics.

And so, we have a tape George Roy Hidd, "Scam", released on big screen in 1973, collected the Oscar awards in all main nominations, and of course has become a classic of the genre. The story tells about two friends-adventurers johnny Hooker and Henry Gondorf, who played the greatest Scam directed against a villain Lonnegan Doyle, who killed them companion. Creating your vis-a-vis alternative reality, our heroes cleverly lured it into the trap...

Captures what is happening with the first frame completely captures attention. Not can not to mention the brilliant cast tandem Paul Newman and Robert Redford, which perfectly serves their characters, bringing to the main characters deep sympathy and drive the audience to empathize with each action maneuver. Not matter quite impressive duration originating not tired looks at one breath, because on a level with a cleverly complex story line, almost every episode is filled with first-class sparkling humor that harmonizes well with every situation.

I want to mention a very good technical side: stylized thirties, gorgeous scenery and costumes, memorable music Scott Joplin, which is used painted Wallpapers create an unforgettable atmosphere, conveying the spirit of your time.

I can not mention the work of writer David S. ward for it is the author of the slim storyline, where takes into account every detail and detail, which by way of overlapping each other leads to implement incredible fraud determining the outcome of the film.

In the end, "Scam" — a masterpiece in its genre, in addition to the vivid dynamic of the story carries meaning, which is the inevitability of victoriastuen justice. Film outside the time that remains relevant and today, of course, deserves the attention of fans of this movie.
