When Sutherland witnesses the murder, it can be clearly seen, though in shadow, that the murder weapon is a revolver. Later however, when Sutherland is shown the murder weapon in the police station, the weapon is a semi-automatic, and not a revolver. See more »
I remember when I was little & they were filming the Bay Boy in Glace Bay & it was very cool to have a movie shoot on the street where our church was. At the time though I was all - Keifer Who? The movie really is fantastic and funny and thrilling but at the time the thrill was that it was shot in our home town. They even had the premiere at the Savoy Theater in Glace Bay which for Glace Bay was a pretty big deal. Though not entirely surprising. The Writer / Director Daniel Petrie was born in Glace Bay.
The CBC had aired this movie many times over the years. So it is quite possible it will air again. Luckily I still have a copy on tape. I've seen copies in the video store (not on DVD mind you - although it very well may be on DVD by now - I am not sure).
A must see. Amazon.ca has the VHS listed.
