Paul Newman in The Color of Money
The Color of Money (1986)
Newman finally won the best-actor Oscar he'd deserved since "The Hustler" by reprising the role of Fast Eddie Felson for Martin Scorsese. Felson is now older and jaded, and is pestered by a young doppelganger of his former self, played by Tom Cruise. It's not as good as "The Hustler," but that would have been almost impossible. It's still a well-made, entertaining story.
