The Making of Slap Shot: Behind the Scenes of the Greatest Hockey Movie Ever Made

Overview

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.

Meet the Author

Jonathon Jackson's journalism career began in his hometown of Owen Sound, Ontario, where he?was far too young to see Slap Shot at the Roxy Theatre in the summer of 1977.

Jackson's byline has appeared in the National Post, the Toronto Star, the Montreal Gazette, the Ottawa Citizen, the Calgary Herald, the Edmonton Journal and the Hamilton Spectator. His freelance work on a variety of topics has appeared in Maclean's magazine and The Hockey News. He lives in Owen Sound with his family.
