Did You Know?

Trivia:
According to Clint Eastwood biographer Marc Eliot, Stirling Silliphant suggested Tyne Daly for her role, but the actress turned down the script three times before finally deciding on doing it. Daly also suggested that the romantic attachment between her character and Callahan be omitted. Eastwood agreed.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: In the long shots of the fire boat, Harry is turning the water cannon to the left, toward the guard tower. In the close ups he is turning it to the right, away from the tower.See more »

Frank DiGiorgio:[DiGiorgio is dying] Harry, listen, the punk who cut me. I've seen him before.
Harry Callahan:Where?
Frank DiGiorgio:...I just can't make the name.
Lt. Al Bressler:Well, where do you know him from, Frank?
Frank DiGiorgio:That homicide, remember, Harry? The old hooker, Filmore district. The summer of '71?
Harry Callahan:Yeah, well, what about it?
Frank DiGiorgio:He was one of the pimps we questioned. We liked him for it, Harry, we liked him real good.
Harry Callahan:As I recall, we liked everybody north of Market Street on that one.
Frank DiGiorgio:He had one of those cutesy-pie, little boy names: Charlie, or something... or Bobby...
Lt. Al Bressler:I'll check Records, they should have your notes.

OK, not quite "marvelous", 8 November 1999
Author: Michael Dyckman from Forest Hills, New York, USA

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.
