in 1986, one of the biggest movies of the year was The Color Of Money. What made it so great? Was it the Oscar-winning performance of Paul Newman, reprising his role of "Fast Eddie" Felson from The Hustler? Or was it the fantastically ridiculous hair of Tom Cruise as Vincent, Felson's apprentice, or the equally ridiculous theme song, Eric Clapton's It's In The Way That You Use It? Maybe Martin Scorcese's direction?
No! It was the scene-stealing appearance of none other than the legendary Lincoln Tap Room! Check out the clip below if you don't believe it! What's really strange is that in the scene, Newman's car is parked in front of what is now a Scientology center... hmmmm... Cruise... Scientology... Tap Room... weird.
As "Fast Eddie" says about the Tap: "This place is an all-time classic."
