Thanks to executive producer Jeffrey Koopersmith for sending these photos of his 1981 Golden Eagle Award-winner On Any Street. Sponsored by the Los Angeles Police Protection League, the 1981 CINE Yearbook describes On Any Street as “a cinema verite documentary examining the everyday duties and experiences of Los Angeles police officers patrolling the streets.” The production team invented a lighting system for the police car and chopper interiors that allowed them to film at high speeds; they filmed for months and culled the final 53-minute film from about 60 hours of footage.
Jeffrey Koopersmith writes:
“It was premiered for 3,000 cops at the Music Center in Los Angeles in 1981. Gov. Gerry Brown was one of the hosts and many celebrities entertained before the film was shown on a huge screen. The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion was the largest theater in the county at that time. What a night. Even Tito Puente was there – and of course the Mayor and City council – all fighting for attention. It’s hard to believe that was almost 33 years ago. The magic of film.”
On Any Street‘s producer, Michael J. Klick, went on to produce 24 and Homeland. The production team also included director/editor Michael Collins, cinematographer H.J. Brown and sound designer Bob Eber.

CINE is pleased to announce the Fall 2013 recipients of the prestigious CINE Golden Eagle Award. Distinguishing excellence in film, television and digital media, the CINE Golden Eagle Award is widely recognized as a symbol of the highest standards in media production. Fall 2013 recipients of the Golden Eagle Award include Robert Redford’s All the President’s Men Revisited, OWN’s Oprah’s Next Chapter, History’s Vikings, documentaries from POV, CNN Films and ABC News, and a remarkable group of films from emerging student and independent filmmakers. Since its founding in 1957, CINE has been dedicated to discovering, rewarding, educating and supporting established and emerging talent in film, television and digital media. Many notable filmmakers have received the CINE Golden Eagle, include Ron Howard, Albert Maysles, Mike Nichols, Robert Zemeckis and many others, and for some – such as Steven Spielberg and Ken Burns – it was their first major award.
