The Rocket [DVD] (2005) *NEW*


A man of the people, denied equal rights in a culturally-divided nation and ridiculed by critics as “too frail to play hockey,” Maurice Richard defied all odds to become the first player to ever score 50 goals in 50 games. This is the extraordinary true story of the man whose tireless fight on and off the ice ignited and forever changed a generation.

Working-class Quebecois hockey player Maurice Richard (Roy Dupuis) becomes a hero to French Canadians as he stars for the famous Montreal Canadiens in the 1940s and '50s. One of the few French players in an English league, Richard has a chip on his shoulder and suffers subtle racial discrimination at the hands of the owner and other players. When his temper boils over during a game in Boston, he is suspended by league president Clarence Campbell (Tedd Dillon), and his fans riot in the streets.
