Skin Game ★★★ 1971 (PG)

A fast talking con-artist (Garner) and his black partner (Gossett) travel throughout the antebellum South setting up scams—Gossett is sold to a new owner by Garner, who helps him escape. Garner and Gossett make a splendid comedy team in this different kind of buddy flick. All is well until Asner turns the tables on them. Finely acted comedy-drama. 102m/C VHS . James Garner, Louis Gossett Jr., Susan Clark, Ed Asner, Andrew Duggan; D: Paul Bogart; M: David Shire.
