There is one thing that the King the Duke and the characters in The Sting have in common and that is the ability to lie and cheat so well to make a living off doing it to others The King and the Duke travel around and find vulnerable locations where they feel it will be easy to con the people that occupy the land Robert Redford and Paul Newmans characters look for high rollers that believe that no one can touch them and steal thousands of dollars from them using all the possible skill and help they can get These two pairs of cons have the ability to deceive almost anyone they meet The King and the Duke took advantage of people by traveling around and using their joint skills of printing and performing they did a very good job taking money away from the townspeople What they would do is create hype and persuade people to go see their performances with advertisements posted around the town Then when performance time came they would do a poor performance of whatever it was they promised to do take the money and not think twice about giving it back Gandorff and Hooker take advantage of people but the difference between these men and the King and Duke is that they do not cheat the innocent but only cheat the cheaters By spending long hours planning their moves to bring the other man down they carry out the plan almost flawlessly and achieve their goal by misleading their victims and deception Although stealing is not the best way to earn a living these two men cheated without including innocent civilians as the ones to be cheated
