I haven't read the reprint yet but the original is a favorite with me.

Several mentions have been made of "The Big Con" without any reference to the film :The Sting" (with Robert Redford) which is an enactment - with logical embellishments- of one con in the book - "The Store". Well worth the effort to view.
