Movies you didn't know were sequels
The Color of Money
"The Color of Money" — This oft-forgotten 1986 Martin Scorsese film about the high stakes world of pool playing is actually a sequel to the Robert Rossen's 1961 pool shark movie "The Hustler." Screen legend Paul Newman reprised the career-defining role of Edward "Fast Eddie" Felson, playing mentor/stakehorse to hot shot pool player Vincent Lauria (Tom Cruise), who acts much like Felson did as a young man. Generally considered inferior to the original film, "The Color of Money" is rarely mentioned among Scorsese's other, more notable work.
