The Friends of Eddie Coyle

Directed by Peter Yates

In one of the best performances of his career, Robert Mitchum plays small-time gunrunner Eddie “Fingers” Coyle in an adaptation by Peter Yates of George V. Higgins’ acclaimed novelDirected with a sharp eye for its gritty locales and an open heart for its less-than-heroic characters, this is one of the true treasures of 1970s Hollywood filmmaking.
