Greatest Canadian: Don Cherry

Brett “the Hitman” Hart wants Don Cherry to be the greatest Canadian. To make his case, he takes us on a trip through the milestones of the outspoken, outrageous and at times outlandish hockey coach’s life – from his hometown Kingston ON, to hockey-towns Boston and Rochester…  from his fund raising for Rose Cherry’s Home for Kids, to his Coach’s Corner TV set with Ron McLain… Hart uses his own slogan for Cherry: “The best there is, the best there ever was, and the best there ever will be.” A funny, insightful film using a delightful mix of live action, animation and over-the-top re-creation.

Directed by Alan Burke, for CBC.
