Original promotional artwork for this film seen on movie posters and video slicks shows a red silhouette of a woman's body almost form part of the letter E of the movie's red-lettered '"HUSTLE"' title. The image merges with the character at the bottom right corner of the letter E. The intention is that the image is a dead body, as per the film's police crime story. See more »

Hustle is a terrific film with a a really nice performance by the always under used (the late great) Paul Winfield, he and Burt Reynolds work well together and Eddie Albert is scary as the low life "leo sellers". the stunt the one reviewer is talking about re: albino actor falling from high rise while blasting his pistol into camera is the late great, Dar Robinson from Reynolds' other film, "stick" in the early eighties. i'm glad this is on DVD now and finally a Reinold's' film that is letter boxed. i hope they can re-do the other films IE: "white lightning", "gator" and "shamus" in letterbox form especially "gator" cause it was shot in Todd A-O scope.
