  1. I don’t see how the mollasses flood will inspire travel. Are they going to have a reenactment?

      1. I remember when they were filming that during the summer trying to create winter. Really pitied the extras trying to warm themselves as I watched in a t-shirt and shorts. The garage is still here now, the tanks and elevated train is all gone. Looks like that would be an easier sell for the tour buses. No end of interesting places here.

  2. There was an earlier Brinks film made in the NE and parts of Boston before the Peter Falk version. It was made in the fifties and called “6 Bridges to cross” Tony Curtis was cast as a thief named Jerry Florea and the young Florea was played by Sal Mineo.
