Dirty Harry: The Original (2001)

*** (out of 4)

This 29 minute documentary has host Robert Urich (who also appeared in the second film in the series) going through the five films in the series as we get interviews with the man himself, Clint Eastwood as well as the original film's writer John Millius. Also interviewed are co-stars from the series including Andrew Robinson, Patricia Clarkson, Evan C. Kim, Hal Holbrook and even fan Arnold Schwarzenegger.

This documentary is certainly very entertaining but at the same time there's no question that 29 minutes simply isn't enough for a five-film series and especially one as popular as this. With that said, this is still entertaining as we get to hear from Eastwood who talks about the political nature of the films, how the original was almost shot in Seattle and he also talks about there being a sixth film. Millius also tells some nice stories about parts of the screenplay that were left out of the actual film. The co-stars all talk about certain aspects of the movies they were in and also talk about what it was like working with Eastwood. Again, all of these are good stories but one just wishes it was longer.
