Mulholland Falls

Synopsis: This film is about the adventures of a 1940's special anti-gangster police squad in Los Angeles, the infamous 'Hat Squad.' The four members of this squad are big, tough, no-nonsense cops who don't hesitate to break the law, if it suits their purposes. When a local woman is murdered, their investigation turns up the fact that she had been romantically linked to several prominent men and had secret films taken of her liaisons. Since one of those men is the powerful U.S. Army General at the head of the then-new Atomic Energy Commission and another is the (married) leader of the Hat Squad, complications ensue. The FBI even gets involved in an attempted cover-up.

he never talked to a

woman in his life.

When did you ever read Hemingway?

He thinks they all want

to be called "my darling."

And what they really want is?

What they really want is a man

that'll listen to their stomachs.

Max, don't drool on me.

- Come on.

- What's the matter?

I'm sorry.

What's wrong?

Tell me.

We found a dead girl in the Valley.

She was broken into 30 pieces.

Couldn't even pick her up.

Who is she?


Just a girl.

Just a girl.

I'm sorry, Kate.

Can you believe that?

The D.A. won't indict Kroyle.

What's wrong with this country?

A guy chops up his parents with an

axe and doesn't get the gas chamber?

How can you plea bargain

something like that?

His fingerprints are all

over the murder weapon.

That places him at the

scene of the crime.

They won't indict.

It doesn't make any difference.

I knew that D.A. when he

was a bagman for Jack Draga.

No kiddin'. How'd he become

a D.A. then, for Christ' sake?

D.A.'s an elected office.

Any scumbag can get in

if they got enough votes.

Ellery, how come you got a hot dog in your

mouth while you're threading a projector?

Why do you eat while you're working?

Why do you eat all the time?

It's all psychological, Max.

I eat so I don't think about food.

So you eat so you

don't think about food?


Ellery, I don't want to

butt into your business,

but this psychiatrist,

the guy you're going to,

I think he's in worse

shape than you are.

She, Max. It's a woman.

Dammit, I can't get my finger

in there! It won't fit!

Try your dick.

Esther, please.

Here, try this.

So you're going to her about food?


I thought you were going to

her about the other thing.

- My temper?

- Yeah.

It's all related, Max.

The eating and the anger,

they come from the same place.
