The Original Six In Splendid Quality

I’m out of town for the day and thought I’d just re-post this because it’s so freakin’ unbelievable. Enjoy the Original Six, with Beliveau and the gang, in splendid quality.

I don’t know how often this has ever been in circulation, but it’s one of most greatest ten minutes of hockey clips you’ll ever see.

It’s from 1967, the quality is sensational, like it was filmed today, and we see Jean Beliveau, as smooth as smooth can be, Bobby Hull, Gordie Howe, Jacques Laperriere, Terry Harper, Ralph Backstrom, Terry Sawchuk, and just about everybody else from that time, all from the old Montreal Forum with the pillars in the background.

It’s called Blades and Brass, is set to music of a Mexican brass band, and comes from the National Film Board of Canada. So just sit back and enjoy the Original Six at the old Montreal Forum, in perfect quality.

  1. Love it Love it….

    Did you notice no one is slammed into the boards and that there where some good “un-cowardly” open ice hits front on front…..

    Bettman and the owners should be taken to court for criminalizing hockey through the last 20 years….

  2. Christopher, I don’t know but it sure could be Suzanne. I’ve got some pictures in my scrapbook of him and his kids and I’ll have a look.

  3. Christopher, I saw in my scrapbook a picture from 1957 of Suzanne when she was 19 months old. So if that clip is around 1965 or so, she’d be about 8. So it seems right that that would be her in the clip.
