The Rocket

The Summerland Film Club presents The Rocket at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 26 at the Rosedale Room of the Summerland Legion.

The Rocket is not only about a great athlete, but includes a moral, if you will, as well.

Until Le Canadiens came on the scene in hockey as formidable winners, a lot of folks in Canada still viewed Quebecois as a sort of backward people, living in a backward province.

The Rocket not only showed them that they were winners, but he also spent a considerable amount of time and effort in “educating” the rest of Canada about his people.
