A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
San Francisco Inspector "Dirty" Harry Callahan must foil a terrorist organization made up of disgruntled Vietnam veterans. But this time, he's teamed with female partner Inspector Kate Moore, with whom he's not too excited to be working.
Nun Sara (Shirley MacLaine) is on the run in Mexico and is saved from cowboys by Hogan (Clint Eastwood), who is preparing for a future mission to capture a French fort. The pair become good friends, but Sara never does tell him the true reason behind her being outlawed.
Philo Beddoe (Clint Eastwood) takes part in a bare knuckle fight, as he does, to make some more money than he can earn from his car repair business. He decides to retire from fighting, but when the Mafia comes along and arranges another fight, he is pushed into it. A motorcycle gang and an orangutan called Clyde (C.J. the Orangutan) all add to the "fun".Written by

While the Jackson Airport was used for some exterior establishing shots, most of the scenes of the jet exiting the airport and people leaving the airport running down the tarmac to the highway was shot in California. The "jet" shown coasting to a stop in downtown Jackson was simply a front-end shell on wheels with people exiting from steps on the other side. See more »
After the barroom fight, the camera cuts to the band playing at the bar. The musicians are not even trying to look like they play the instruments. The piano player sort of twiddles his fingers above the keys, while the guitar player just stops strumming while the music, including his guitar, continues to play. See more »

In the version shown on network television, scenes were added that were cut from the theatrical and home video versions. Those scenes include: Big Tony's thugs shooting Beekman's snake (the scene showing Beekman later eating the snake when he finds out the fight is on exist in all prints) and Big Tony ordering his commercial jet to head back to Jackson for the big fight. The final credits are time compressed or speeded up to end sooner. See more »
I just love this movie. I love the music in the film because i am a fan of country music. Clyde is as funny as ever. Every time he came on and done something stupid I was in fits of laughter. The motorcycle gang were just as funny when they went through the tarpit and then they started hardening up because of the tar. The other part of the film where Clint's girlfriend is kidnapped by this mob boss is pretty good. And the bare knuckle fight scenes are well choregraphed as well.
