The Sting

Fundraiser screening for Rockland District Nursing Association

Robert Redford plays Depression-era confidence trickster Johnny Hooker, whose friend and mentor Luther Coleman (Robert Earl Jones) is murdered by racketeer/gambler Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). Hoping to avenge Luther's death, Johnny begins planning a "sting" -- an elaborate scam -- to destroy Lonnegan. He enlists the aid of "the greatest con artist of them all," Henry Gondorff (Paul Newman), who pulls himself out of a drunken stupor and rises to the occasion. Hooker and Gondorff gather together an impressive array of con men, all of whom despise Lonnegan and wish to settle accounts on behalf of Luther. The twists and surprises that follow are too complex to relate in detail -- suffice to say that you can't cheat an honest man, and that you shouldn't accept everything at face value.

The Sting became one of the biggest hits of the early '70s, picking up seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Adapted Score for Marvin Hamlisch's unforgettable setting of Scott Joplin's ragtime music!

ROCKLAND DISTRICT NURSING ASSOCIATION
Caring for the community since 1929
One of three remaining district nursing agencies in the state of Maine, RDNA nurses continue to regularly visit close to 200 predominantly elderly area residents living independently in South Thomaston, Owls Head, Cushing, St. George, Warren, Union, Thomaston and Rockland.  Without federal/state funds or insurance reimbursement, RDNA relies on gifts and contributions to cover the majority of operating costs, allowing fees to remain affordable and services accessible.  Only through the generosity of this community has RDNA, for 89 years, continuously been able to focus on serving residents who otherwise may not have access to care. Visit our WEBSITE for more information.
 
Donation proceeds will go to RDNA due to the very generous support of the First Advisors.
