Dirty Harry: Harry Callahan is a tough, streetwise San
Francisco cop whom they call Dirty Harry. In this action classic, you'll see why
- and also why Clint Eastwood's reputation as a premier film star and moviemaker
is secure. A rooftop sniper (Andy Robinson) calling himself Scorpio has killed
twice and holds the city ransom with the threat of killing again. Harry will
nail him, one way or the other, no matter what the "system" prescribes. Filming
on location, director Don Siegel made the City by the Bay a vital part of Dirty
Harry, a practice continued in its four sequels. Thirty years after its arrival
the original remains one of the most gripping police thrillers ever made.
Magnum Force: Underworld figures are being murdered all over San
Francisco. One by one, criminals who have eluded prosecution are getting the
justice they deserve, justice you'd think Detective Harry Callahan might approve
of with a tight-lipped smile. But if you think so, you've misjudged Harry - and
so have the killers. Written by future directors John Milius and Michael Cimino,
this Dirty Harry sequel stars Clint Eastwood in his signature role of Callahan,
here facing an unexpected kind of lawbreaker: one who carries a badge.
Sharpshooting rookie motorcycle policemen have turned vigilante. Their real
enemy is the system. But the system is what Harry is sworn to protect. And he
does - with Magnum Force!
The Enforcer: When detective Harry Callahan stops a liquor store
hostage standoff in his own no-nonsense way, he gets busted back to personnel.
But not for long. When terrorists rob an arms warehouse and go on a blood-soaked
extortion spree, San Francisco's leaders quickly seek out Callahan: The
Enforcer. Clint Eastwood takes dead aim again in this third of his five Dirty
Harry films. Presaging her four-time Emmy-winning stint as half of TV's Cagney
and Lacey, Tyne Daly co-stars as Harry's new partner, who has two jobs: nailing
the terrorists - and winning hard-boiled Harry's confidence. Stoked with brisk
humor and hard-hitting mayhem The Enforcer carves another winning notch in the
handle of Harry's .44 magnum.
Sudden Impact: Sensitive to outcries of police brutality, the
superiors of San Francisco Detective Harry Callahan have sent him on an
out-of-town assignment until things cool down. But wherever Harry goes, things
just get hotter. Clint Eastwood hits the mark again in Sudden Impact. Callahan's
older, dirtier and the world hasn't gotten better. Which means this fourth Dirty
Harry movie (which Eastwood also directs) is explosively exciting, as Callahan
tracks a traumatized rape victim (Sondra Locke) coldly gunning down her bygone
attackers. Through the five Callahan films, the lawman always struck a powerful
chord. But Sudden Impact is particularly potent, fueled by the line that became
a national catchphrase: "Go ahead. Make my day."
The Dead Pool: Fame isn't detective Harry Callahan's style. He
dislikes being grouped with a rock star, a film critic and a TV host, all slain
celebrities in a macabre betting pool called the 'Dead Pool'. Another name just
got added and it's his...
