    I never understood the hype about The Sting. Never before had a horror movie made so much impact and opened so many doors, The Exorcist easily.

    The Sting was an (at the time) ambitious period piece with a clever screenplay and well-liked stars. It is (arguably) the first “challenging” film, aka not the usual Oscar movie, to win Best Picture which the voters did as a statement. Keep in mind that at this time in history the Oscars were widely disliked for being out of touch and only interested in the usual mainstream storytelling genre.

    I liked The Sting but I don’t know if I would give it the Oscar…same goes for The Exorcist.

    A Touch of Class was only an average film at best.

    Cries and Whisperers was quite good, but my vote goes to AMERICAN GRAFFITI….a sentimental favorite.

    The Exorcist is one of my top 5 favorite films ever…easily.  2nd place flip flops between American Graffiti & Cries and Whispers…both incredible in so many different ways. The Sting would be 4th with A Touch of Class dead last…

    Cries and Whispers or The Exorcist, two masterpieces.

    American Graffiti and The Sting are great movies.

    A Touch of Class is the weakest here, by far!

    The Sting is a great movie (a little slow paced), but The Exorcist is the greatest film to ever fall even somewhat into the genre of horror.

    It’s hard to choose between American Graffiti and The Exorcist, but I’ll choose American Graffiti.
