A movie about a good cop.."Serpico"

True story about a good cop & what happens to him. Quite sad, but totally true.

"An honest New York cop named Frank Serpico blows the whistle on rampant corruption in the force only to have his comrades turn against him."......from IMBD...Internet Movie Data Base.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070666/

Warning: This is a great movie, but..not a feel good move
Al Pacino is outstanding as Serpico.

1. He should never have gotten involved with someone

unable to differentiate between Giuseppe di Stefano and Jussi Björling.

5. Laurie couldn't differentiate operatic tenors

Harker merits points for some really obscure trivia.

7. Thanks, Buzz...

It's the obscure stuff that I find most fulfilling.

9. And I am an even older man.

I'm the same age as "Ben-Hur."...the Heston flick, not the silent one featuring Francis X. Bushman. Now, THAT'S an old movie.

Saw it when very young, and it scared me.
