You've just named the two pool films that deserve to be called that, 9baller. "The Baltimore Bullet" and "Pool Hall Junkies" aren't worth ten minutes of your time. Plenty of films feature pool scenes, of course, but those are really the only four movies I can think of that are THEMED around pool. There were cheapie films with Fats and Mike Massey; they're even worse than "BB" and "PHJ". Sorry I couldn't be more encouraging. GF

I agree. Baltimore Bullet is so bad, even the big name stars like Omar Sharif and James Coburn can't save it. The best thing about it is the pros in the background. Pool Hall Junkies is even worse.

See my Aug-Oct '04 articles (http://billiards.colostate.edu/bd_articles/index.html). I describe several other movies and illustrate and explain many shots from the big three.

Regards,
Dave
