In honor of my local team winning the Stanley Cup last night for the first time in their 45-year-history (Go Kings!) I happily foist upon you the theatrical trailer for hockey flick, Slap Shot.
Slap Shot stars Paul Newman as Reggie Dunlop, the player/coach of the Charlestown Chiefs. The film was directed by George Roy Hill (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting) and was released in February of 1977. Newman stated that his role as Dunlop was a personal favorite. Post-1970s, Slap Shot has taken on cult status and is considered something of a “Guy’s Classic”.
