Henry Winkler announces today's AFI Movie Club selection: THE STING. The film stars Robert Redford and Paul Newman with production design by Henry Bumstead. Bumstead – who won his second Academy Award® for THE STING's impossibly charming period aesthetic – helped to educate the next generation of storytellers as a teacher at the AFI Conservatory.
DID YOU KNOW? THE STING garnered 10 Academy Award® nominations, winning seven of them – including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Editing. Right before the film was announced as Best Picture, a streaker ran across the stage. The incident has become one of the most memorable moments in Oscar® history.
