Descripción

Bilked bankers, grifted gamblers, and swindled spinsters:welcome to the world of confidence men.You'll marvel at the elaborate schemes developed by The Yellow Kid and cry for the marks who lost it all to his ingenuity$8,000,000 by some estimations. Fixed horse races, bad real-estate deals, even a money-making machineall were tools of the trade for the Kid and his associates: the Swede, the Butterine Kid, the Harmony Kid, Fats Levine, and others. The Sting (1973), starring Paul Newman and based largely on the story of the Yellow Kid, is entertaining, but is no match for the real deal.
