Digitally remastered edition of the original soundtrack to the 1961 motion picture. The Hustler was the first truly iconic film of Paul Newman's career. It was nominated for nine academy awards: best picture, actor, actress, director, screenplay, cinematography, art direction and two for best supporting actor. The beautiful Jazz score, re-released here for the first time, is by the composer Kenyon Hopkins (Baby Doll, 12 Angry Men, The Fugitive Kind) and our edition is completed by the music from two other fine Newman movies of the period; Paris Blues and The Long, Hot Summer, both directed by Martin Ritt, with soundtracks by Duke Ellington and Alex North respectively.
