Policeman Leonard Mann follows up on a kidnapping case and intervenes
"La polizia interviene ordine di occidere" (1975) aka "Left Hand of the Law" is a solid film in the poliziotteschi genre. Leonard Mann plays a police captain who thinks that a kidnapping is really designed to raise money for a more serious terrorist group that is being orchestrated by someone higher up. In a well-scripted subplot, Mann's girl friend, Janet Agren, has some difficulty coming to grips with Mann's profession, dedication and fierceness. Mann heads a special squad and directs its procedures. There is a very good car chase sequence near the beginning. The film has an excellent music score that ranges from exciting big band rhythms and tunes to violins. The dialog is realistic and makes up for some looseness in the plotting. This movie features some big guns: James Mason, Stephen Boyd and Enrico Maria Salerno. The title is descriptive: the police intervene in a sequence of killings.
