In 1977, director George Roy Hill re-teamed with actor Paul Newman - the pair had previously collaborated on Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting, two of the biggest movies of the past decade - for an oddball sports comedy about a little-known sport: ice hockey. Written by Nancy Dowd and inspired by her brother Ned’s time playing for the minor-league Johnstown Jets of the oft-flooded steeltown Johnstown, Pennsylvania, the film was originally envisioned as a documentary before Hill pitched it as a comedy. To make the film many real-life players took on roles, including Ned as the dreaded “Ogie” Ogilthorpe. While the film didn’t take home the Cup at the box office, it has gone on to be widely regarded as one of the best sports movies of all time. Now we’re hitting the ice for Slap Shot!
