Peter Yates, the Oscar-nominated director of riveting crime classics "Robbery" and "Bullitt", teamed up with thein comparable Robert Mitchum for an unforgettable excursion into Boston’s criminal underworld.
Based on the acclaimed novel by George V. Higgins, The Friends of Eddie Coyle follows an ageing gunrunner’s troubles at the peripheries of the local mob once he finds his options split disastrously between the threat of a fresh prison sentence or police cooperation.
One of the best, most unexpected gangster films of the 1970s, The Friends of Eddie Coyle is a gripping tale of lowlives and loyalties, presented with the director’s trademark authenticity and naturalism, and an extraordinary array of performances, led by a never-better Mitchum. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present this masterpiece for the first time on home video in the UK in a Dual-Format special edition.

Awesome gem from the 70`s with a great cast and Mitchum in one of his best roles. His character seemed almost tailor made for him. Picture quality was formidable and soundtrack great. A must have for any serious collector. well worth the price.
