Dynamic Duo, Dormant Plot
8 April 2014 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Before receiving an award for outstanding police work, New York City patrolmen David "Dave" Greenberg and Robert "Bob" Hantz are seen interviewed. Affectionately nicknamed, "Batman and Robin," this is their true story. After the credits, we flashback to the dynamic duo beginning at the Police Academy, with actors Ron Leibman (as Greenberg) and David Selby (as Hantz) assuming the roles. At first, Mr. Leibman and Mr. Selby are not assigned very hazardous duties. They start to go off on their own, wanting to crack down on drug dealers...

Rogue techniques get the pair in trouble with the law, but we know from the opening how this story ends. This gives "The Super Cops" less tension than ideal – and, consequently, there isn't an abundance of excitement in the narrative. Leibman and Selby have a good rapport and director Gordon Parks works well in the gritty setting, with photographer Dick Kratina. Shot in a steeply sleazy walk-up hotel, the first meeting with sexy Sheila Frazier (as Sara) is a highlight.

***** The Super Cops (3/20/74) Gordon Parks ~ Ron Leibman, David Selby, Sheila Frazier, Pat Hingle
