Dirty Harry (1971) Poster


John Vernon: The Mayor



  • The Mayor : Callahan... I don't want any more trouble like you had last year in the Fillmore district. You understand? That's my policy.

    Harry Callahan : Yeah, well, when an adult male is chasing a female with intent to commit rape, I shoot the bastard - that's my policy.

    The Mayor : Intent? How'd you establish that?

    Harry Callahan : When a naked man is chasing a woman through a dark alley with a butcher knife and a hard on, I figure he isn't out collecting for the Red Cross.


    The Mayor : I think he's got a point.

  • Chief : [introducing Harry to the mayor]  Mr. Mayor, Inspector Callahan

    The Mayor : All right. Let's have it.

    Harry Callahan : Have what?

    The Mayor : You report. What have you been doing?

    Harry Callahan : Well, for the past three-quarters of an hour, I've been sitting on my ass waiting on you.

  • Chief : Callahan? You willing to take the money to him?

    Harry Callahan : When will you people stop messing around with this guy? He's gotta be stopped now!

    The Mayor : He's got a busload of kids and I can't take that chance. I gave my word of honor on it and he will not be molested! That's a direct order, Callahan!

    Harry Callahan : Well, you can just get yourself another delivery boy.

  • The Mayor : Well where are you going?

    The Killer : I'll tell the pilot when I get on the plane. No alerts, nothing.

    The Mayor : I guarantee you you will not be molested in any way.
