The Heist: Ah, revenge. Paul Newman and Robert Redford are out for it, against slippery gangster Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). And they’re gonna get it – by humiliating Doyle and taking all of his money.

Coolest Detail: It’s brilliantly complex, involving numerous instances of deception, close shaves and the creation of an entire fake betting shop.
