Cop in Blue Jeans . . . Dressed to Kill

In the 1970's for the first time movies portrayed policemen who were not the well-dressed, well-mannered heroes that had been featured in movies from the beginning of time. It became very vogue and exciting to show cops who were ragged, tough, and playing by the rules only as long as it suited. In this crime adventure centered in Rome, Italy Nico Giraldi is a special policeman riding a motorcycle through the streets of Rome searching for robbers. There seems to be an epidemic of snatch and grab purse thefts in Rome all orchestrated by The Baron, who has henchmen all around the city snatching purses, luggage and briefcases from the innocent people of Rome. Unconventional cop Nico, played by Italian actor Tomas Milian, wants to get to the fence who is laundering all of the stolen goods, but can't even catch the Baron at anything illegal let alone discover who the big fence is. One day a couple of the Baron's henchmen steal a briefcase from an American leaving a downtown hotel, and when they take the case to the Baron and open it they discover a fortune in U.S. money. Soon the Duke's robber henchmen are killed by the American gangster as he tries to recover the money. The American with all the money is legendary actor Jack Palance, and he shows no mercy to the Italian thieves as he catches them and kills them one by one in his search for his money and the Baron. Meanwhile Nico, the ragged-looking cop finally corners the Baron and arrests him with the briefcase full of money. By this time the Baron is in fear of his life from the powerful American, whoever he is, and the cops use the Baron as bait to catch the American. After a pretty good 1970's motorcycle exploding, shooting car chase ragged cop Nico trails the American until he drives into a large walled estate with Italian authorities guarding the entrances, and telling Nico that he cannot get through that gate to pursue the American. This is where we get the surprise twist about the gangster played by Jack Palance, that may open a window to Italian vs American mindsets of the 1970's . . . I was in my twenties at that time, but not terribly political or into the international relationships of Italy and the U.S. . . . I'm not sure if there is deeper meaning for Italians in this twist, or if it was just a way to move the plot along. In any case it is a wonderful look at Rome, Italian actors and a 1970's city crime adventure, so pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
