The new 70s retro trailer for Shane Black's The Nice Guys is a lovely bit of patchwork fakery that made me instantly nostalgic.

Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling star. The plot doesn't matter as much as the mood and music and mystery of some kind of investigation taking place in the wilds of Hollywood in the 1970s. Not only is 70s cinema a personal sweet spot, but I grew up in Los Angeles and so ... I love this.

But, memory being what it is, it made me wonder about the trailers for police and private detective stories, made in the 70s and set in 70s Los Angeles. Click through the gallery for a few examples. And please add further suggestions in the comments.
