The Friends of Eddie Coyle (1973) was one of the original tough guy ensemble cast films. A middle-aged Robert Mitchum and Peter Boyle make this one worth watching just for their performances.

Can’t believe Peter Boyle is … DEAD !!!
I couldn’t believe they changed the ending from the book!! The book was almost a perfect screenplay.
