ELECTRA GLIDE IN BLUE
1973, Park Circus/MGM, 114 min, USA, Dir: James William Guercio

Arizona motorcycle cop John Wintergreen (Robert Blake) is an ambitious rookie who dreams of being promoted. He gets his wish when an apparent murder leads to an assignment with homicide, but Wintergreen soon realizes that he identifies more with the hippies his partners harass than with his fellow detectives. Trying to solve a murder while dealing with departmental politics, Wintergreen is quickly disillusioned in this blend of Western and urban cop drama. Keep a sharp eye out for members of Chicago, cast in small roles by director James William Guercio, who also managed the band at the time.
