The Super Cops is a 1974 film starring Ron Leibman and David Selby, directed by Gordon Parks. The film is based on the book The Super Cops: The True Story Of The Cops Called Batman and Robin by L.H. Whittemore. The film was released the year after the successful cop movie Serpico (also based on a true story).
Two rookie policemen, Dave Greenberg and Rob Hantz, straight out of the NYPD police academy, want to do more than traffic control. They have their own ideas about fighting crime against drug dealers, criminals and corrupt cops in Brooklyn.
