I had vague memories of seeing this film years ago when I was probably sixteen that had haunted me for the following sixteen years of my life. Having just seen this gem again on cable I remembered why. The acting in this film is so far beyond most of the junk that is released today that the phrase, they don't make them like they used to should be changed to , they can't make them like they used to. While some aspects of a movie of this age might seem a little dated who could reasonably deny that the final scene of this film is the most stunning thing ever exposed to film. Hell I could watch that ending every day for the rest of my life and always be awed by the beauty and sadness of it.

This was worth the upgrade from the DVD I had. The movie is incredibly beautiful, and has certain existential qualities. Thanks Shout Factory.

I see everyone here that write their review is about the VHS,well boy wouldn't you love
to know this Blu-Ray is of outstanding picture quality,only thing there is no scenes on the
menu and it's in 2.0 master HD audio,i would've loved for it to be 5.1 but what the hell you can't
get everything,and it's in 2.35:1 Widescreen,Oh how i hate full-screen with a passion,it should
be buried and gone,and don't come back,this has got to be the Absolute Best movie by Robert Blake
i've ever seen,John Wintergreen [Robert Blake],would like nothing better than to be a detective,
to wear a Stetson,and smoke the big fancy cigars,and who would like to be paid to think,so when
he stumbles upon a dead body,he try to prove he's got what it takes to handle the job,i think the
most poignant part of the movie is when Wintergreen got his chance to play detective,is when the
Sherriff took him to meet his girl in the night club,thinking he was her only man,then she turn the
table on him to let him know Sherriff everyone been having a piece of me even Wintergreen,no
one cared about her feelings just there own,that's when Wintergreen decide the job of being detective
is not so great because the Sherriff threaten his life if he ever tell anyone.
this movie is produced & directed by [James William Guercio] which also has an audio introduction,
The music is composed by [James William Guercio] As well.

Although this movie came out awhile ago I just watched it recently and loved it! Robert Blake does a wonderful job playing the motorcycle cop that craves to become a detective but is disillusioned once he gets the promotion. The corruption conflicts with his integrity and he returns to being a motorcycle cop which best suits him. The ending left me stunned. This is one I'll be watching again.

This film is a must for your collection for three reasons:
1. The best cop film ever made.
2. One of the best films in American cinematic history.
3. It shows Robert Blake as one of the true great actors.
Before I get down to details, a complaint. When is this movie going to be available on widescreen DVD format? I bought the video and anxiously await the DVD release.
In 1973 Electra Glide In Blue was released to a big yawn. It has since become an American cult classic. If I told you where the interesting title comes from, I'd be giving away a major plot point.
Robert Blake plays a small-town desert motorcycle cop with dreams of grandeur. He seemingly gets his wish when he's promoted to detective and becomes involved in a homicide investigation. The investigation centers around a hippie commune where Blake identifies more with the hippies than with his fellow officers.
There are three truly great American actors: Marlon Brando, James Dean and Robert Blake. Electra Glide In Blue shows Robert Blake at his very best. And that's the name of that tune.

Format: VHS Tape
This episodic and leisurely paced crime thriller/character study was one of the last of the true "60's" films (even though it was released in 1973). The twist here is that the existential anti-hero isn't riding a chopper or racing across America in a Challenger to keep one step ahead of "The Man" but in fact IS "The Man" --a motorcycle cop! One-shot director James William Guercio, previously known for producing the band Chicago and creating the Caribou Records label, does an admirable job (and leaves one wondering why he didn't continue to pursue filmmaking). Robert Blake delivers his second-best ever perfomance ("In Cold Blood" remains his highest watermark) as a highway patrolman yearning for a more glamourous (to his perception, at least) posting as a homicide detective. All the supporting actors are superb, and the expansive cinematography recalls "Vanishing Point" and "Badlands" with its sweeping vistas of the American West. A sleeper worth a look.

Robert Blake as "Big John" Wintergreen is the important part of this film.
Not to say that the motorcycle chase setpiece isn't worth watching.
Not that the end of the film isn't ironic and powerful.
But Bobby Blake simply *owns* this film.
As Arizona motorcycle patrolman John Wintergreen, Blake gives an excellent portrayal of a man who remains idealisticdespite the cynicism that his job normally engenders.
As other reviewers have mentioned, this film forms an almost certainly unintended (and somewhat tenuous, but nonetheless real) stylistic trilogy with "Easy Rider" and "Vanishing Point", examining issues and aspects of the counterculture of the 70s through the lens of America's addiction to gasoline.
Of particular ironic (and iconic) interest to myself and other Viet Nam veterans is the scene betwen Big John and the truck driver...
And the poignance of the ending is unquestionable, reflecting the cynical view that "No good deed goes unpunished."
((Why was a still from this film displayed with other photos, awards and trophies on Captain Furillo's office wall on "Hill Street Blues"?))
((Incidentally, while director Guercio was, as has been mentioned, horn band Chicago's producer, before that he played bass for Frank Zappa in the Mothers of Invention...))
