Trivia

Edward Burns would go on to create a series of his own, Public Morals (2015), dealing with police and criminals in New York City during the 1960s. His co-star from this series, Neal McDonough, joined him once again as his rival. Ironically, in that series, Burns is the police officer, and McDonough is the criminal. See more »

Outstand Drama but don't use it as a History Lesson
23 December 2013 | by stevek712See all my reviews

The reviewer wrote about the accuracy of the film, but I doubt he is any more qualified to say that than I. As a dark Drama, it is outstanding. I love the way they all talk like a '40s crime drama. The costuming is also outstanding. As to racial integration, ask retired Mayor Tom Bradley who also retired as an LAPD Captain. Life as a "Negro" was not that easy. This was the time when LAPD was cleaned up using the skill of Chief Parker and the influx of experienced and mature WWII Veterans. The detectives also display only little guns. A lot carried larger frame and longer barreled 6 shot revolvers like the 4" Colt New Police and the Smith and Wesson M&P. We need to avoid using film as a history lesson. For example, "Chinatown" is not based upon fact.
