Fast Eddie Felson (Paul Newman) is an ambitious young pool player, and a very good one at that. He's hungry to beat Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason), the best pool player around in a high stakes, smoke filled, dingy pool hall match. Eddie is arrogant. Fats is smooth. Eddie's arrogance is his self-destructive tragic flaw in this black and white filmed classic with an exceptional cast. On his second attempt, Eddie does defeat Fats. Then it's a planned trip down to Louisville to play. The decision turns against Eddie.
