Trivia

(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 »

Poliziotteschi mixed with giallo.
14 March 2015 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Calling All Police Cars" directed by Mario Caiano is an intriguing Italian oddity as it mixes elements of poliziotteschi and giallo.Massimo Dallamano's effective giallo "What Have They Done to Your Daughters?" is an obvious influence here.The body of murdered teenage girl is found at a lake.Commissario Fernando Solmi(Antonio Sabato)leads an investigation and he discovers a teenage prostitution racket.During the final third of "Calling All Police Cars" three vicious murders are committed by black gloved killer including nasty throat slitting.There is plenty of nudity and like I already said there is an emphasis on police procedural methods during the first hour of Mario Caiano's movie.7 nude teenagers out of 10.
