Paul Newman and his boys; from Slapshot (Dir: George Roy Hill - 1977).

Today I learned that there is a book called "The Making of Slap Shot: Behind the Scenes of the Greatest Hockey Movie Ever Made". Written by Jonathon Jackson and published in October of 2010 this book about the production of the great sports movie from 1977 is already on my reading list. As a matter of fact, it's about to be bumped up a few notches, past "Godzilla on My Mind"... okay, perhaps that's an exaggeration, but the point is made.

Slap Shot is my favourite sports movie; even more so than The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island (1981).

Book Review: The Making of Slap Shot
