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 »
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?
