"The Friends of Eddie Coyle." Can't get any more Boston than that. "The Brink's Job," with Peter Falk, Allen Garfield, Peter Doyle, Warren Oates, Gena Rowlands, Paul Sorvino and Sheldon Leonard."Celtic Pride" -- never saw it, heard it is terrible, but hard not to include it. "The Last Hurrah" -- Spencer Tracy as a Boston politician. "The Boston Strangler." "Fever Pitch" -- it ends up at Fenway!
