The Sting

1 post in this topic

Not a musical, but the music is very important to the movie. 

In the original theater release Hooker (Robert Redford) steps around the corner at exactly the same time as the chorus for Easy Winners.  It's timed perfectly though I don't know if it would be the director or Marvin Hamlisch, who did the Scott Joplin songs, who was responsible. 

Hooker also put a blood capsule in his mouth before he leaves his room on the last day of the Sting.

I bought the VHS version as soon as it came out.  I was disappointed to find that the capsule is cut out of the scene and Hooker is out of synch coming around the corner.  This is also true of the Turner Classic Movie version that they play on tv.  Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the original version?
