Superfuzz

Released 1981
Distributor AVCO Embassy Pictures

Although not widely distributed theatrically, Sergio Corbucci’s little-known Italian-Spanish superhero comedy has a tremendous fan base of kids who saw it on HBO in the early 80s. Terence Hill (Mario Girotti), who usually made comic westerns with partner Bud Spencer (Carlo Pedersoli), is Dave Speed, telekinetic flying supercop, who makes life tough for his bewildered partner Ernest Borgnine.
