Storyline

Chuck O'Flair and two buddies, Russ Hartley and Harry Whenlon, enter the Los Angeles Police Academy as cadets. Cocky and sure of himself, O'Flair almost gets washed out as unfit material. After they graduate, one of them accidentally stumbles on a gang of black marketeers and is murdered. O'Flair requests the assignment to track down the killer.

Trivia

The art on the cover of the Warner Brothers Archive Collection dvd shows Ralph Meeker laying next to Elaine Stewart in a bathing suit. In the movie, it is Robert Horton who is next to Stewart in this scene. Meeker is in a canoe with his girlfriend. This art may be from an original lobby card for this movie or maybe was created specifically for the dvd box art. See more »

Second Half Is Worth The Wait
22 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Motorcycle Cops and Motorcycles are the Main Thing in this Mainstream Movie of the Docu-Types that were Prolific in the Early Fifties. This one has the Whole First Half Devoted to a Behind the Scenes Look at the Police Academy Training. Intriguing to Some it is quite a Boring Affair unless Ogling the Vintage Bikes is Your Thing.

It Zeroes in on Three Recruits and Their Initiation with some Youthful Playfulness and getting the Babes is Forefront. In the Second Half it is a much Better Movie as these Rookies are Thrust into a Crime Investigation and in the Third Act it Becomes a real Barn Burner with some Hard-Edged Violence and Believable Danger.

Ralph Meeker Melts the Screen with His Macho Egomania and Foolish Behavior but in the Space of the Film's Short Running Time Matures into a Full Blown Police Officer, however never Losing Sight of the Ladies.
