Maurice Richard - The Movie
The movie is slated to have only 4 actual on-ice re-enactments and the series does end after the Richard riot. One of the re-enactments is the early knockout by Richard on Bob 'killer' Dill and the Laycoe-Richard incident is another that they will try to recreate.
The role of Dick Irvin Sr. will be played by a Canadian actor Stephen Mchattie and that is a prominent part of the movie.
By the way, the new CBC's 10 part production called 'Hockey - A People's History',
are doing re-enactments of plays from the 1954-55 season and are in production now. I think that the shoot on saturday is open to the public in Montreal. Part of Epidsodes 4 & 5 will focus on Maurice Richard and there has been great attention paid to details regarding jerseys etc.
