Did You Know?


(at around 0h 21 mins) Police Chief Carraro (Enrico Maria Salerno) stands in front of a map of Rome and points at the place where Fiorella Icardi (Adriana Falco) has been seen refueling her motorcycle. If you compare the movie frame with an actual map of Rome you can tell that he points exactly at Cinecittà (a large film studio that was once considered the hub of Italian cinema). See more »

All roads do not lead to the murderer
23 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Calling All Police Cars" (1975) boasts a very good cast of familiar and expert actors of the period. The head cop is Enrico Maria Salerno. Working under him is an Antonio Sabato; he's the main lead. The young daughter of Gabriele Ferzetti goes missing, and a hunt starts up. The first part of the film is a tense police procedural that keeps us fully engaged. They find her body in a lake, shot to death. The search for the killer occupies the next part of the movie. Ettore Manni, a voyeur who has a cafe near the lake, is investigated. Salerno, feeling political pressure from higher-ups, wants to pin it on him; but Sabato cannot imagine this young girl going miles out of her way for a tryst with a dirty old man like Manni. A tire track from a Mercedes provides a clue.

There are other leads and red herrings, but as the investigation gets closer to its target, the killer begins to strike again to silence possible witnesses. This lively poliziottescho at that point dabbles somewhat in the art of giallo; but the movie is really mostly a police procedural facing a mystery.

This is reasonable entertainment, not deep, not highly emotionally-charged, not really a thriller, just a crime story.
