Monday Movie Quote: THE FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE.

Eddie ‘Fingers’ Coyle (Robert Mitchum) : I shoulda known better than to trust a cop. My own goddamn mother coulda told me that.
Dave Foley (Richard Jordan): Everybody oughta listen to his mother.

Sage advice indeed. One should listen to one’s mother.

I was sad to hear of the passing of director Peter Yates. In addition to EDDIE COYLE, Yates directed BREAKING AWAY, THE DRESSER, BULLITT, KRULL (Well, we all make mistakes) and another twenty or so films.
