    Deep Focus, movie reviews of The Hustler & The Color of Money

    COM disappointed me also. Cruise aka Vincent is pictured on the book but ,isn't in Walter Tevish's book at all. The book was great,it's a shame Hollywood changed it.

    They made a movie...

    Hollywood would probably remake The Hustler because remakes always make money and they know it.

    Meucci MO-4 1/2 question: is the white pill bumper original? Cue hasn't been refinished. Thanks!
