Disambiguate/split[edit]

Good changes, and I haven't even seen the IMDB page for this film. I'm really a Wiki-newb, but I think this needs a stub tag and a disambiguation from the book. Much like the Fight Club and Fight Club (film) pages. --Doom Music 1/1/2006

Current edit should be sufficient. We don't have enough material on either the book or the film to warrant an article split; not even close. It's also no longer a stub. — SMcCandlish [talk] [contrib] 10:33, 30 January 2007 (UTC)
This does eventually need to fork into The Color of Money for the book and The Color of Money (film); cf. The Hustler and The Hustler (film). — SMcCandlish [talk] [contrib] 21:42, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
Agree, when there is sufficient material and reliable sources on the novel it can be split out. At the amount there is nothing more than a plot summary, and articles based on plot summaries are against WP:PLOT. SilkTork *YES! 11:34, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

There should be a lot more information about the novel to warrant a split up. Keep it as such for now. SpeakFree (talk)(contribs) 23:42, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

It still needs to split. We don't write one article about two different things, unless one is a subtopic of the other, which is not the case here. As long as there's any source at all on the novel, that's good enough. As for the plot, the book is its own source, of course. We just need something, like some reviews, to establish the book's notability. — SMcCandlish   Talk⇒〈°⌊°〉 Contribs. 12:34, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Legacy[edit]

I don't see what's wrong with the Legacy section. It's also sourced. 47.152.93.124 (talk) 02:53, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

It is irrelevant to the film and utterly trivial. ---The Old JacobiteThe '45 03:06, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
The legacy section is about a pool challenge match that's named after the film. That does define the word legacy. 107.130.120.49 (talk) 20:05, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
So what? It has nothing to do with the film. ---The Old JacobiteThe '45 20:23, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
The legacy of a work does not necessarily refer to later things that deal with the work directly. It also includes later things that make references to it. 2605:E000:2E42:A3F0:25ED:B04F:B6D5:603 (talk) 03:03, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
Only if they are relevant and well-sourced. ---The Old JacobiteThe '45 11:51, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
