The Knock Out Cop picture

Audio problem: Rizzo gets interrupted in his 'conversation' with Tom; he shoves away the guy with the horseshoe moustache, sending him offscreen. A noise of broken glasses and cracked wood is added, but in the following part of the scene the club is undisturbed, with a couple nearby and every table intact. It's only a minute later when the big guy comes back with a vengeance, that stuff starts breaking and people acknowledge violence happening nearby. (00:36:40)
