Winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture, this film evokes the 1930s era of Chicago
gangsters and conmen. The music of Scott Joplin is used as the score throughout the film,
promoting a resurgence in the popularity of ragtime when the film was released. In particular,
Joplin’s “The Entertainer” reached the top of Billboard’s pop charts. This film is a pure delight
for so many reasons, not the least of which is the pairing of Robert Redford and Paul Newman --
both at top of their game – and incredible cinematography, sets and costumes.
