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 James Craig 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 »

I like this movie for the vintage motorcycles
16 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a decent old movie with several future TV stars. It even has an almost unrecognizable Chuck Connors who looks like a teenager. It depicts the training that the motorcycle officer take. The actual plot is pretty weak but that's OK. I have a pretty good copy of it from TCM.

I am trying to remember the name of a similar 50s B&W movie about LAPD recruits who end up on motorcycles. In an early scene, one of the soon to be cops is a swimming pool cleaner and flirts with a babe in a swimsuit. This is about all I can vaguely remember except that there were some decent motorcycle scenes.

Anybody have a clue on the title or any of the actors?
