The movie, which stars Paul Newman, was written by Nancy Dowd. The story was based in part upon the experiences of her brother, Ned Dowd (who appears in the film as notorious hockey player Ogie Ogelthorpe), when he played for the North American Hockey League club in Johnstown, Pennsylvania called the Johnstown Jets of the North American Hockey League (NAHL). In the film, the fictional Charlestown Chiefs of the fictional Federal League are fashioned on the Jets and the NAHL. The Hanson Brothers provide several humorous moments in the film and are best remembered for: * starting fights * interrupting the coach in the locker room during pre-game speeches with overzealous shouting * wearing extremely thick nerd glasses * childishly playing with toy cars and trucks in their hotel room, although the brothers range in age from 18 to 20 In the film, The Hansons are brought in by the front office as part of an inexpensive deal, also as enforcers for the Charlestown Chiefs during the team's 1975–76 (and final) season. They are, in order of their numbers: * Jack Hanson (portrayed by David Hanson) – #16 Left Wing, age 19 * Steve Hanson (portrayed by Steve Carlson) – #17 Center, age 20 * Jeff Hanson (portrayed by Jeff Carlson) – #18 Right Wing, age 18 (en)
