Rocco Laurie is seen holding either a Colt Python or a Diamondback. NYPD firearm regulations at the time specified fixed-sight service revolvers only and both of the Colts mentioned have adjustable sights. Plus, most Pythons were made in 357 magnum, and NYPD only allowed revolvers chambered in 38 special. See more »

Well done true story
10 November 2003 | by (Mobile AL) – See all my reviews

Foster and Laurie is the true story of the murder of two New York City policeman by black revolutionaries. Outstanding performances by the cast all the way around. The made for TV movie tells the parallel stories of the policemen and their assassins leading up to the murders in flashback style. Effort is made to present the killers as actual people and not just cardboard cutouts and commendably the initial racial tension between Foster and Laurie is shown.
