‘The Laughing Policman’

'The Laughing Policman'

First off, Walter Matthau does not laugh very often, if
at all, in the 1974 film ‘The Laughing Policeman’. The
title refers to an old song from the 1920’s. The opening
scenes are a precursor to real tragedies of the future as
passengers on the number 14 Mission bus leaving the
Transbay Terminal are all massacred by a maniac using
a machine gun. The modern photograph was taken in 2010
on the day that the Transbay Bus Terminal closed forever.
