Looks pretty nice. Never seen the film tho, is it any good?
It's the "Oceans 11" of its time with great performances by Redford and Newman. A bit old fashioned at times, but definitely a classic in the original sense of the term. I sold my US steelbook in anticipaton of getting a nice 4K premium and since I can get the TW one without extra customs fees and the zavvi one not, this is currently the front runner!

Since "Oceans 11" is a modern movie, of course they have computer that kind of cool stuffs.
"The Sting" is set in 1936, all they can do is use the human greed.
I think that is why I love it more than "Oceans 11". (Though I love George Clooney & Brad Pitt, too!)

It's setting is the the 1930's! Even if you made the film today - the story's setting would still be the 1930's!
the Newman/Redford/Shaw pairing can't be beat. Plus they filled it out with amazing character actors.
When the film came out it sparked a resurgence of Ragtime music becuase of the score, and the sountrack sold Millions.
Won 7 Oscars that year including Best Picture and Best Director for George Roy Hill.
a stone cold classic.
