Paul Newman and Robert Redford on the poster for ‘The Sting’

Paul Newman (at right) got top billing on the poster for the 1973 film The Sting, which won that year's Oscar as best picture. Robert Redford and Robert Shaw co-starred in the hit film, which was directed by George Roy Hill. Newman and Redford played con men, with the villainous Shaw as their dangerous mark.
