And I thought the A Christmas Story poster was the best fan-made alternate poster I’ve ever seen. Just so damn awesome. This one is absolute perfection and captures the essence of the film so well…at least when the Chiefs aren’t playing Toe Blake/Eddie Shore-style old time hockey.
Here is a great article on why Slap Shot is so damn great. And if you are interested, here is a great book about the making of the film. As I’ve stated before, this is my favorite movie of all-time. Chock full of the most colorful characters cinema has to offer, it still makes me laugh as hard today as the first day I saw it.
Kudos to Paul Slayton who designed this. Truly amazing work, sir!
