I saw this a very long time ago, probably 20 years ago or thereabouts.
Darn good film, Paul Newman was absolute aces, as was Piper Laurie, Jackie Gleason, and George C. Scott. Jake LaMotta had a small part as a bartender in this, didn’t realise until the end credits.
I thought the black and white photography was not B&W enough, it was too low contrast with too many shades of grey. But I read that it received two Academy Awards for the black & white cinematography, so what do I know?
Hopefully The Clooney does not decide to remake this, it cannot be topped, not even by the Clooney.
There are some interesting facts about the film here.
