Calling All Police Cars / A tutte le auto della polizia (1975)

Young girl goes missing in a Rome. She a daughter of surgeon and owner of private clinic with good connections. Police turns the city upside down trying to find her. Finally she is found dead, dumped in a lake with a bullet hole in the back of her head. Autopsy shows that she was three months pregnant. Who is her secret lover ? Hunt for the killer starts.

Good combination of Poliziotteschi and Giallo is what we get here. Beginning of the films mostly concentrates on the investigations of police trying to find the missing girl. Giallo part kicks in later in  the films when the killer silences people who are on to him/her. Only typical Poliziotteschi car chase is in the end when the police is after the killer.

Antonio Sabato plays the leading role as the officer who is investigating the case. Also starring Luciana Paluzzi as a female officer. She is best known for her role in James Bond movie Thunderball, as a SPECTRE assassin Fiona Volpe.
