Keystone Cops The Keystone Cops were a regular feature in Mack Sennett's silent Keystone comedies. Their heyday was between 1912 and 1917. The ensemble that played the comical police force changed from film to film. (Many were per diem actors who remain unknown to this day.) Ford Sterling usually played the police chief. In this still photo silent screen buffs will recognize Roscoe Arbuckle and Edgar Kennedy.

Before Britney No one is surprised that photographers are always there to document Britney's every move, but I wonder how this 1942 photo of Frances Farmer came to be. Did cops tip off the press in advance? Initially, Farmer was arrested by Santa Monica police for drunk driving. She got into a heated exchange with a cop before being dragged off to jail. By the time she was re-arrested for violation of parole, Farmer had dislocated a hairdresser's jaw, got into a late night bar brawl, and streaked topless through Sunset Strip. She signed "[email protected]#ks*&ker" as her occupation at the Hollywood police station. there is nothing new in the world...

Lost Chaplin Film Discovered For years film historians were puzzled by Charlie Chaplin's claim that he'd had a bit part as a Keystone Cop early in his one-year stint at that famous studio in 1914. Despite the best efforts of silent screen buffs, Chaplin's claim could not be verified until 2010 when a print of A Thief Catcher surfaced in Taylor, Michigan. Film historian Paul Gierucki found the film by chance: The movie buff happened to be browsing in an antiques shop when he found the 16-millimeter reel hidden inside a chest. Originally thinking it was an unimportant Keystone comedy, Gierucki let the flick sit on a shelf in his home for months before deciding to view it. Partway through the film, two Keystone Cops make an appearance. The build, mannerisms and facial features of the smaller cop were undoubtedly Chaplin's. Chaplin's film career has been well chronicled by experts, so his surprise appearance in A Thief Catcher stunned Gierucki. He quickly shared his remarkable find with other silent film fans. Their research confirmed the one-reel comedy had been filmed in January 1914 and released the following month. Like many early silent films, it was believed to have been lost forever. A Thief Catcher was screened at a film festival in Arlington, Virginia in June 2010--presumably its first public showing in 96 years. (This is a frame of the film.) It is now rightfully included among Chaplin's filmography.

Forgotten Sitcom - The Partners In 1971 NBC had high hopes for a new sitcom titled The Partners. It starred Don Adams as Detective Sergeant Lenny Crooke and Rupert Crosse as his partner Detective Sergeant George Robinson. Both cops were prone to acts of comic carelessness but Crooke was the more bumbling of the two. Rare for its time, The Partners had no opening montage or theme song. Its title and credits were simply interspersed among the opening scene. (Music did accompany the closing credits, however, and the same tune was occasionally heard leading into some scenes.) Adams had hoped the series would address serious social issues, but NBC preferred to recast Adams in a purely comedic role similar to his Maxwell Smart character from Get Smart which had ended in 1970. The Partners scored very well with test audiences, so NBC slotted it at 8 p.m. on Saturday night beginning on September 18, 1971. In a stroke of bad luck, in the fall of 1971 CBS decided to move its surprise hit All in the Family to the same time slot to replace the fading My Three Sons. The Partners was crushed in the ratings. It was pulled from NBC's lineup in January 1972 although a few unaired episodes were shown in the summer.
