The Friends of Eddie Coyle.


The Friends of Eddie Coyle is a dirty film noir from 1973. Directed by Peter Yates, this film was shot in Boston during 1972. Not only is Robert Mitchum stellar as the loser Eddie Coyle, the footage of early 1970's boston is something to see for anyone that grew up in the 1970's. This is one of the best film noir dramas of the 1970's and has been something of a gem since it went out of Print years ago on Video. Just last year Criterion released it on DVD. Below you will find the complete film in 11 parts.
