Shy police officer SOLVED by cgideas

Would you please help me find a british seventies coloured crime and comedy movie:
I remember a shy young police officer in it playing cards with some others while waiting for something concerning a case.
A guy (someone like Robert Morley) peeked at his cards in an obvious way but he didn't complain because as I have said he was a shy.
At the end of the movie the young officer shot with a rifle and killed the driver of a vilains' car coming upon them.
I was impressed by the confidence he was showing after his success.

Re: Shy police officer

Although a lot of the details don't quite match what you've described, I believe you may be thinking of Murray Melvin's character in KALEIDOSCOPE (
