MST3K - Mitchell
Mitchell is a 1975 film starring Joe Don Baker as an abrasive, alcoholic police detective. Very much an anti-hero, Mitchell often ignores the orders of his superiors in pursuit of his targets, and demonstrates disdain for by-the-book police work as well as normal social graces. The film also stars John Saxon and Martin Balsam as the criminals Mitchell pursues throughout the film. Linda Evans and Merlin Olsen appear in supporting roles as a prostitute and henchman, respectively.
Be sure and notice the genre-busting soundtrack. The movie starts out with a Shaft inspired rubber guitar solo, the chase scenes have a lovely 2 bar light rock/corporate PR film melody, and interspersed with that is some piano noodling that sounds vaguely similar to Nadia's Theme.
And if that isn't enough to set your teeth on edge and leave you tasting vinegar and copper, there's the 'Ma-ma-ma-ma-Mitchell' country crooning of an embarrassed Hoyt Axton.
