I recently watched a DVD of the 1973 film. "The Friends of Eddie Coyle". It is a film about bank robbers shot in Boston.

It is a great film that captures the gritty side of Boston in the early 1970's. But what is very special about the film is towards the end when an extended scene takes place in the old Boston Gardens during an actual 1973 Bruins vs. Blackhawks game.

Seen in action are Gerry Cheevers and Tony Esposito, Pat Stapleton and other players including a long-haired Bobby Orr. In fact, the star of the film, Robert Mitchum, sitting high up in the crowd talks to the hit-man beside him about Bobby Orr and how he is only 24 years of age and has a great future ahead. The film is done so well that you can experience what it was like to be at an NHL game in the old Gardens. This DVD is available at the Regina Library and worth checking out.
