Pool-hustling saga which borrows its basic situation from The Hustler, much of its detail (including a New Orleans jazz funeral) from The Cincinnati Kid, and never comes within striking distance of either film. It's passable enough thanks to Coburn and Sharif (both grinning as toothily as Burt Lancaster), but meanders aimlessly through some lamentable direction and a silly gangster subplot.
