L.A. Noire and the missing crime desk
Team Bondi’s 2011 investigative cop thriller L.A. Noire followed detective Cole Phelps solving crimes in late 1940s Los Angeles.
There were supposed to be a dedicated Bunko and Burglary desk with 11 additional cases, but there simply wasn’t enough room left on the Blu-Ray to ship them.
Many of the cases in L.A. Noire were inspired by real crimes from the period, like ‘The Red Lipstick Murder’ which was based on the 1945 Black Dahlia case. Team Bondi used photos taken by Robert Spence from a biplane in the 1920s to help create traffic patterns and transport routes in post-depression Los Angeles.
