I can't believe I haven't mentioned this yet.

The short was filmed in IDAHO! My home state! Now, it wasn't filmed in the best part of the state, but was instead filmed near Meridian, over by Boise, but I feel a wonderful thrill every time I see that ISP patch. When I was living in Toronto, I would just start smiling. No, it doesn't take much. =D

And in case you're wondering, there are still (even 50 years later) a number of railroad crossing with no warning lights, some even without signs.

I don't know how it happened, after such a dismal first impression, but Radar Secret Service has finally won me over! It came next in my rotation, I gazed upon it in dread, now I see that it's just the sort of lump of pompous propaganda that's perfect for MST3K, with some of the slickest riffs of the series! I love Big Brother!

When Mike & da Bots start chanting "dead dead dead your dead dead dead" etc I'm surprised they didn't comment on the name "Mort" in the credits.

You know, for all the intricacies of the bad guys' plans, the plot can be - spoiler warning - summed up by: the bad guys didn't think radar could find them, but radar did find them. Also, radar provides a moving picture of cars on the road.

And for heaven's sake, Michael saying Mickey just left a little while ago, while glancing at Mickey's corpse!

40% of traffic accidents involved a vehicle pulled over to the side of the road, the short says. I actually found myself quoting this statistic to someone recently. How silly to assume that a statistic from 1959 would be the same today! I'm guessing that the number isn't nearly that high now, but I don't know for sure.

At the end of the movie, they land the helicopter, then they have the shootout. When they return to the helicopter it's not parked in the same spot or facing same direction. Did someone move it?

Crow giggling like a manic toddler for his underroos at 3:41 fills my heart with gladness. Trace is legend.

-Hey, my sensible pants!
-Hey, my bra!
-Hey, my pantyho-- I mean, what are those?

I guess the pants are the ones Joel gave Crow as a gift, instead of a racecar. Seems like he shouldn't be upset about losing them.

For some reason, this is one of my favorite episodes. Yes, it's dull and gray, but the riffing is so good that I don't even care!

The short was also filmed in my home state, and so it makes me a trifle nostalgic, as well.

Why don't they look?

One of the coolest things about this one is that the cop in the short, William Boyett, was also the sergeant in almost every episode of Adam-12.

I've seen both episodes a zillion times but it just hit me that Mickey Moran in this movie is the same actor (Tom Neal) that plays Clifford Scott in The Brute Man. Clifford is the guy that screws Rondo Hatton's character Hal over while they're in college, which leads to Hal burning his own face with acid. I only realized it because I was dozing and I suddenly realized his voice sounded really familiar. So I checked IMDB and there ya go! Turns out Tom Neal had an interesting but rocky real life as well.
