Why hell Universal Pictures does not release P.J. in DVD ? Does this film studio forgot this movie as one of the best thriller ever made in the 60' and 70' ? I saw "Syndicat du meurtre" (french title) only one time 35 years ago, on the 1st french TV channel, black and white broadcasting! So that my memories are black and white and that's perfect for this kind of movies (Can you imagine Asphalt Jungle in Technicolor?) As said in an other comment, P.J. is at the same level as Paul Newman's Harper, Sinatra's Tony Rome or Widmark's Madigan. This movie was really modern for the time, and I really miss it has been let beside as long as mediocre movies block video shop shelves. And never proposed on VOD either. That's too bad...
