Memorable Quotes and Dialog:

"I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kind of lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question. 'Do I feel lucky'' Well, do ya, punk'
  - Dirty Harry (Clint Eastwood) to Scorpio (Andrew Robinson)
"You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

Rating: 3/5 -- What makes Dirty Harry worth watching no matter how dumb the story, is Siegel's superb sense of the city, not as a place of moods but as a theater for action. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- '70s rebel-cop classic is way too edgy for kids. Full Review

No less than Siegel's Invasion of the Body Snatchers, it offers a fabulous, multifarious political metaphor. (And, as with Body Snatchers, Siegel's own liberal interpretation was trumped by a more forceful hard-right reading.

Description by OLDIES.com:

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.

Product Description:

A tremendously controversial film, both decried as an apologia for fascism and hailed as the solution to a decade of rising crime, DIRTY HARRY propelled Clint Eastwood's career into the stratosphere while adding another archetype to join his Man with No Name in film iconography. Clint stars as Harry Callahan, a truculent San Francisco police detective well known for his vicious take-no-prisoners attitude toward criminals. With the city of San Francisco being terrorized by the psychotic killer known only as Scorpio (Andrew Robinson), Harry is assigned by the mayor (John Vernon) and Lt. Bressler (Harry Guardino) to try to stop him, pairing him with reluctantly accepted new partner Chico (Reni Santoni). Scorpio kidnaps a 14-year-old girl and buries her alive, demanding a $200,000 ransom for her return. Harry is to bring him the money--alone. What follows is one of the most exciting ransom deliveries in film history. The prototype for most of the action films through the rest of the century, DIRTY HARRY rises far above most of them due mostly to an excellent script and Eastwood's gripping acting. That said, the main character's contemptuous attitude toward the Miranda law seems far more damning now that it did in the early 1970s.

Plot Synopsis:

Clint Eastwood stars in one of his most popular roles, as Harry Callahan, a determined cop hunting down the psychotic Scorpio. But just when he thinks the case is closed, the chase begins again. This violent and controversial hit paved the way for several sequels and a slew of urban cop movies.

  • Theatrical release: December 23, 1971.
  • Shooting location: San Francisco, Mill Valley, and Larkspur, CA.
  • Clint Eastwood replaced Frank Sinatra, who had other commitments.
  • Don Siegel commented, "DIRTY HARRY is a wall-to-wall carpet of violence."
  • Andrew Robinson, who plays the killer, was an avowed pacifist at the time of the film's production; he was so unaccustomed to firearms that an instructor had to be hired to teach him how to shoot.
