Plot Summary

In the year 1971, San Francisco faces the terror of a maniac known as Scorpio- who snipes at innocent victims and demands ransom through notes left at the scene of the crime. Inspector Harry Callahan (known as Dirty Harry by his peers through his reputation handling of homicidal cases) is assigned to the case along with his newest partner Inspector Chico Gonzalez to track down Scorpio and stop him. Using humiliation and cat and mouse type of games against Callahan, Scorpio is put to the test with the cop with a dirty attitude. Written by commanderblue

Trivia After Clint Eastwood and Don Siegel came on board the project, they hired writer Dean Riesner to work on the script. In his first rewrite, the bank robbery scene ends with Harry not pointing the gun at the robber, but placing it against his own temple. He pulls the trigger, laughs and then walks away. Eastwood and Siegel both felt this was too extreme, even for Harry Callahan. See more »
Goofs The District Attorney tells Harry that his search of Scorpio's dwelling was illegal and violated the Fourth Amendment, making all evidence inadmissible. Harry's search is entirely legal under Exigent Circumstances, as someone's life was in imminent danger. Additionally, Scorpio is stated to be living in Kezar Stadium under the consent of the grounds-keeper. However, the grounds-keeper, in all likelihood, does not have the legal standing to grant that kind of permission, making Scorpio a squatter and thus not protected by the Fourth Amendment. See more »

Quotes Harry Callahan: Uh uh. 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 kinda 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 gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?
