The Hustler (1961), re-release poster (1964), US

Unframed: 41 x 27 in. (104 x 69 cm)

The film was released in 1961 and the poster used for the initial release had an image of Paul Newman kissing Piper Laurie. That image did not do any justice to the film, and when The Hustler was re-released in 1964, the studio produced this new poster, which is perfect for the film, and more collectable than the original release poster.

This classic 1960s pool hustling film was directed by Robert Rosse, starring Paul Newman as 'Fast' Eddie and Jackie Gleason as Minnesota Fats, together with Piper Laurie as Sarah.
