Tyne Daly says that the only time she ever saw Eastwood get angry was when they were filming the climactic scene between her character and his and a production manager was hurrying the crew to wrap it up. Eastwood snapped that they had made it this far and that there was no need to get cheap now. His wishes were followed and they kept shooting until Eastwood was happy with the shot. See more »
At the autopsy of the elderly security guard, the medical examiner says that the killer put his hand over the guard's mouth before stabbing him in the back, but as shown in the earlier scene the killer clearly didn't do this. See more »
Kindler, gentler Dirty Harry film which puts our bureaucracy-hating, crime-busting hero with a female partner played by Tyne Daly, who would later achieve fame on "Cagney & Lacey" and is currently seen on "Judging Amy." Thin plot, some classic Eastwood quotes, but the villains can't match Andy Robinson from "Dirty Harry" or David Soul from "Magnum Force." This might be the weakest Harry of the bunch.
