While filming was underway, Omar Sharif was staying at a local hotel, and sent his cousin, who bears a slight resemblance, to tell the Director the hotel and to ask for his blue pages. The Director then rushed the cousin into makeup, mistaking him for Sharif himself. See more »
This is required viewing for any James Coburn fan.
Easily one of his best performances and perhaps one of the best "buddy" films I've ever seen. James Coburn (as Nick Casey aka The Baltimore Bullet) and Bruce Boxleitner (as Billy Joe) are excellent as a professional pool hustler and his up coming protogee'. The two have great chemistry on screen that is hard to duplicate. Omar Sharif plays "The Deacon", the ultimate pool hustler and gambler that had been serving jail time, but is now out on "Good Behavior". The movie follows Coburn and Boxleitner cross-country trying to hustle up enough money to play The Deacon who only plays for a 5-figure minimum. And a player that had his way with Coburn the last time they shot pool. Sending the Baltimore Bullet home in "nothing but his jock strap".
This movie is a laugh a minute, chock full of one-liners, that will have you watching it over and over again!
