We continue Noirvember 2020 with a look at Peter Yates’s The Friends of Eddie Coyle. Based on the novel by George V. Higgins, the film stars Robert Mitchum as the titular Coyle, an over-the-hill small time crook who’s trying to get by in the milieu of Boston’s underground. The film is rich with incredible character actors like Peter Boyle, Richard Jordan, Alex Rocco, and more.

Andrew J. Rausch and Eric J. Peterson join Mike to discuss the film as well as crime writing and the Boston beat.
