Riassunto: How a movie about minor league hockey became a box office hit-and an international cult classic
Even thirty-odd years after Slap Shot's release, diehard hockey fans can still recite scenes of dialogue by heart, making lines like "putting on the foil" just common argot for the devoted. Yet many may be surprised to learn that the true story behind the making of the film is as captivating as the film itself. In The Making of Slap Shot, veteran sports writer Jonathon Jackson lets fans not only relive just how the film was made, but brings to light surprising facts (i.e., Al Pacino was the first choice for the role of Reggie Dunlop; almost every scene-even the absurd and unbelievable ones-depicts a real life event). With access to those involved in the making of the film, he brings to life some of the magic behind the creation of memorable scenes and characters, especially the Charleston Chiefs, one of the most popular fictional sports teams in history.
Destined to be a collectible and keepsake (along with the jerseys, bobbleheads, and other paraphernalia associated with the film), The Making of Slapshot is a must for fans eager to learn even more about their favorite film.
From the Back Cover:
The best hockey movie of all time
The Making of Slap Shot reveals the improbable, hilarious, behind-the-scenes story about the crazy and wildly popular film Slap Shot—a story too real and too good not to be true. Personal interviews with cast members, production staff and others offer a rare inside view of the making of Slap Shot, including little-known facts, anecdotes from the set, and, best of all, a chance to get inside the locker room with the Charlestown Chiefs, one of the best known and most popular fictional sports teams in history.
Praise for Slap Shot

“...hockey people adored [Paul Newman] for his performance in Slap Shot. That movie was such a boon to hockey, just as he made pool more glamorous, playing Fast Eddie Felsen in The Hustler and then in The Color of Money. If Paul Newman was connected, it must be good.”—Frank Deford, Sports Illustrated
“...a great working-class story. A wonderful risky performance from Paul Newman...just a terrific film.”—Gene Siskel, film critic
“It’s literally my favorite sports movie.”—Barbara Morgan, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the Austin Film Festival
“...the best sports film of the past 50 years.”—Dan Jenkins, GQ
“When I coached juniors, that movie was playing on the bus every year.”—Mike Babcock, Stanley Cup-winning coach of the Detroit Red Wings
“George Roy Hill’s direction and Nancy Dowd’s script provide lusty entertainment, combining human touches with ample mayhem on the ice.”—Bob Thomas, Associated Press
“Violent, bloody and thoroughly revolting.”—Rex Reed, film critic
