The Husband picked The Sting, which was a birthday present to him in response to his request for comedies and movies with happy endings. This 1973 film, which I have seen a couple of times before, stars Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Robert Shaw, Charles Durning, Ray Walston, Eileen Brennan, Harold Gould, James Sloyan (who has a Star Trek connection), Sally Kirkland and Charles Dierkop (who has an original series Star Trek connection).
The New York Times has a review. Variety likes it. The BBC review closes with this: "For those watching this after a large meal, intertitles with different chapter headings break the plot into easily digestible chunks." Roger Ebert says, "It's good to get a crime movie more concerned with humor and character than with blood and gore; here's one, as we say, for the whole family."
