• Just this week a man, armed with a handgun, attempted to rob what is almost certainly (based on local accounts and a little detective work on our part) the very same Dedham, Massachusetts, bank that was the setting of the first big heist in 1973’s The Friends of Eddie Coyle. If this is indeed the place, it still stands intact thirty-six years later, though it’s now a branch of Citizens Bank. Talk about life imitating art . . .  Thankfully no one was hurt in the incident, though as in the film, crime didn’t pay.
