The art on the cover of the Warner Brothers Archive Collection DVD shows Ralph Meeker laying next to Elaine Stewart in a bathing suit. In the movie, it is Jeff Richards who is next to Stewart in this scene. Meeker is in a canoe with his girlfriend. This art may be from an original lobby card for this movie or maybe was created specifically for the DVD box art. See more »
When O'Flair is fighting the bad guy with a meat cleaver, the bad guy takes a couple of swings at O'Flair and misses, hitting the wall instead. Before that, you can see about a dozen marks in the wall from previous takes. See more »
A B-movie from MGM....and an enjoyable one at that.
"Code Two" is a film that lost money at the box office. Despite that as well as a few clichés in the story, it's a dandy film and worth your time.
The movie follows a trio of men, particularly Chuck O'Flair (Ralph Meeker), from the police academy to their first assignment in Los Angeles. Chuck is a very stereotypical guy--much like the sorts of guys William Haines played in the 1920s and 30s. In other words, he is very skilled but even more full of himself! And, when it comes to women, he thinks they'll all swoon at his boorish ways. However, his obnoxious veneer is challenged when his partner is murdered on the job...and Chuck not only blames himself but insists on tracking down the killers.
This film runs at under 70 minutes and its stars are Meeker and Keenan Wynn...minor stars but typical of the sorts of assignments they'd get from the studio. Look past how obnoxious the writer made Chuck (that is a major problem in the film) and you'll be able to enjoy a decent cop film.
