“La polizia accusa: il servizio segreto uccide” (aka “Chopper squad” -” Silent action”) is the second police movie directed by Sergio Martino after “Milano trema, la polizia vuole giustizia”. In his second experience as director Martino prefers to give a strong political overtone: the main character is again the “tough commissioner” played by Luc Merenda, investigating a series of murder cases (played them of as suicides) of army functionaries. Through the investigations the commissioner exposes a coup d’état and encounters a reality too dangerous and troublesome for him. Once again the proficiency of director Sergio Martino reveals strongly and elegantly, especially in action scenes like the notable long final scene (assault against the headquarters). “La polizia accusa...” is a movie with strong message. It tells – through Cinema fiction – many secret political plans that menaced the Italian state during the seventies. The movie is supported by a notable cast, like the already mentioned Luc Merenda, American actor Mel Ferrer, the good Tomas Milian in a small, but strong role that leaves its sign. Digitmovies presents as third volume of its series dedicated to the Italian police movies the complete original motion picture soundtrack by Luciano Michelini, author of several OST for the screen like “Decamerone nero” (1972), “Anna, quel particolare piacere” (1973), “Morte sospetta di una minorenne” (1975), “La città gioca d’azzardo” (1975), “L’isola degli uomini pesce” (1979). For “La polizia accusa: il servizio segreto uccide”, Luciano Michelini created a symphonic score that alternates between romantic atmosphere to dramatic and mystery ones. Our CD opens with the theme of Titoli di testa (Tr.1), a dark motif given by string ostinato, percussions and piano, reprised later in Tr.3 and Tr.12. The secondary theme is a Love theme introduced as a slow and romantic version with a modern arrangement (Tr.2) and then reprised in Tr.4 and in the second part of Finale (Tr.15). Suspense music – sometimes slow, slow rhythmical – and action cues underscore the darkest side of the story in Tr.5, Tr.6, Tr.7, Tr.9, Tr.10, Tr.11, Tr.14, Tr.16. Another recurring theme is a grotesque march (Tr.8, Tr.13, Tr.15). At the end of the CD we included tracks not used in the movies: suspense and action music (Tr.16, Tr.18, Tr.21, Tr.22, Tr.23,), the short version (Tr.19) and the long version (Tr.25) of the modern and romantic unused theme of “Titoli di testa” that reproduces the Morricone and Nicolai sound of the Italian Giallo; the love theme (Tr.20) and two dance floor themes (Tr.17, Tr.24). Initially we only found the monaural master tapes of this score, but further searches in the Rca archives resulted in the discovery of the stereophonic tapes that gave us the chance to realize a CD with far superior sound.
