Newman and Redford pass a few facial expressions between them and try to cool each other out. If there ever was much of a script, it can be said to have gone to waste.
Extremely handsome production values and a great supporting cast round out the virtues.
The film ends up relying on different chapter headings to explain what's going on, but it's all very professional, with fine attention to period detail.
The film is so good-natured, so obviously aware of everything it's up to, even its own picturesque frauds, that I opt to go along with it.
The movie has a nice, light-fingered style to it.
| Original Score: 4/4
