Mitchell (1975) (part 3 of 8)
Back at the station, Mitchell is going through a file cabinet with fellow detective Tyzack. Suddenly, the Chief walks in and rips a piece of paper out of Tyzack’s hand, and tells Tyzack to get lost so he can chew out Mitchell some more.
The Chief asks Mitchell what he was doing, and Mitchell stupidly admits he was going after Deaney. Geez, at least make up some kind of lie or something.
The Chief finally lets Mitchell know that Deaney is wanted by the FBI for “every federal law violation in the book”, and that the Bureau has been trying to nail him for over two years. Of course, this is the first we’ve heard of it. You’d think that info like this would have come in handy earlier. Anyway, Chief says Deaney is FBI property, Mitchell gets chewed out, Mitchell leaves.
At his bachelor pad, Mitchell chugs a can of beer while looking over some paperwork. Also, for no clear reason, he’s got about a dozen copies of a black and white headshot of Cummings [?]. Let’s just say this film doesn’t exactly rival Adam-12 for its realistic portrayal of cops.
