Trivia
This movie performed poorly box at the box-office as well in its critical reception. It paled in comparison to the original 'Sting' film, notable for its music score and being nominated for 10 Academy Awards and winning 7 including Best Picture. Amazingly, this sequel actually garnered one Academy Award Nomination and that was in the Oscar category of Best Music, Original Song Score and Its Adaptation or Best Adaptation Score for Lalo Schifrin.

Oliver Reed plays the role off Lonnegan. Robert Shaw played the part of Doyle Lonnegan in The Sting (1973). Whether or not Shaw would have reprized his role is academic as he passed away in 1978. We never hear the first name of the character in this sequel.

Director Jeremy Kagan once said of this movie: "'The Sting II' is inspired by and is an expansion of the first 'Sting' rather than a continuation. The principal characters of Fargo Gondorff and Jake Hooper are based on two real-life con-men and are totally different from the original . . . 'The Sting II' has more comedy and the nature of the con is more intriguing. Now the con men themselves are being conned."

Goofs
The Coney Island Roller Coaster train is made of fiberglass, not wood, as a 1940s coaster train would be. Fiberglass was introduced commercially in 1936, but it was used mostly as insulation. It wasn't used for applications like roller coasters until well into the 1950's.

Both times that Hooker rides the Coney Island roller coaster, his cap stays neatly in place, on his head, for the entire ride. In reality, that type of coaster can reach speeds of 60-70mph. His cap should've blown off during the first drop.
