A/V Geeks present Good Cop, Bad Cop - Sat. Oct. 26 - 8PM

Oddball Films welcomes the A/V Geeks' Skip Elsheimer all the way from North Carolina for Good Cop, Bad Cop, an evening of 16mm films featuring one of his favorite genres - police training films.  Handpicked from the A/V Geeks archive of over 20,000 films, these films offer a glimpse into one of the hardest jobs out there - one that deals with people at their absolute worst. To prepare officers with the harsh realties of their job, police training films are often gritty - filled with profanity, blood and violence, as well as unintended hilarity. Films include Civil Liability: Failure To Protect (1978) A series of vignettes that demonstrate possible civil liabilities that a police offer can face in the line of duty -- all set to a nice funky soundtrack; Bombs II (1971)  While this film is mean to be cautionary film for officers how to deal with bombs, it almost reads like a How-To film for potential bomb makers. So, what could make this film even more amazing? How about a cameo appearance by Mickey Rooney as a mad bomber?; It's Your Move Sergeant (1973) Another series of vignettes that show cops dealing with misbehaving fellow officers, this film is made for sergeants to discuss how to manage the misbehaving cops; Crimes In Progress - Patrol Procedures (1973) Who could imagine that a film talking about basic patrol procedures could contain such flowery prose? Brilliant!; and Sudden Birth (1966) Really the best way to show a police officer how to deliver a baby in the back of a car, is to just show a baby being delivered in the back of a car! Filmed in the Bay Area! Plus! A silent slapstick pre-show with Buster Keaton's Cops (1922). Regardless how you feel about law enforcement, these films illustrate what a pain in the ass it is to be a cop!
