The Sting: Universal 100th Anniversary Edition Collector’s Series
Blu-ray + DVD +Digital Copy ($19.98)

Paul Newman and Robert Redford reunited with “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” director George Roy Hill for this double-crossing, con-game crime caper set in Chicago of the 1930s, which brought home seven Academy Awards in 1974. (And its hit theme song made a household name out of pianist Marvin Hamlisch and brought a posthumous wave of attention to the tune’s composer, ragtime artist Scott Joplin.) This hi-def deluxe edition comes with documentaries about Universal Studios in the 1970s, the company’s legendary production back lot and its mission of film restoration, plus a 46-page booklet with photos, replicas of pages from the original script, and more.
