    “Hustle” is one movie I'll see again as I sure recall the era…late 1970's. Big hair, men having perms, comb-overs, a sea of polyester, leisure suits, flared slacks, plunging necklines on women in discos, the works. Adams and Lawrence stole the show….Renner and his blow dry poof…Cooper at his best. One great line from “Sat. Night Fever”, 1977, regarding looks is Travolta telling his pop, “Hey, don't hit my hair…!” The director John Badham did the chopper movie, “Blue Thunder” six years later.
