THE NEW CENTURIONS
Directed by RICHARD FLEISCHER Screenplay by STIRLING SILLIPHANT
Dawn breaks over Los Angeles. A reluctantly retired cop called Kilvinsky, who is quietly going crazy now that he is off the force, phones his friend Roy, a still-active patrolman. Kilvinsky (George C. Scott) launches into a rambling, nearly pointless anecdote about a batty old lady who kept seeing a man hovering around her front-porch swing. Friend Roy (Stacy Keach), mostly asleep, listens with polite tolerance. Kilvinsky hangs up, pulls the hammer on his Police Special and blows the back of his head off.
Director Fleischer and Scenarist Silliphant are clearly interested...
