Heavy Metal (1981) Poster


Richard Romanus: Harry Canyon (segment "Harry Canyon")



  • Harry Canyon : [after the redhead told him about why her father was killed]  I didn't know whether to believe her or not. Something inside me told me it was a sucker player.

    Girl (segment "Harry Canyon") : Harry... can I sleep with you?

    [takes off her clothes] 

    Harry Canyon : Yeah. Sure.

    [the redhead climbs into his bed and they have sex] 

    Harry Canyon : Sucker play or not, I must have turned her on somethin' fierce. 'Cause this dame was goin' for broke. Or maybe it was her first time with a New Yorker, I dunno. Anyway, nothing can beat good old American know-how. And I was givin' this broad "The Stars and Stripes Forever".

  • Harry Canyon : [voiceover]  The U.N. Building. What a joke! They turned it into low rent housing. It's a dump.

  • Desk Sergeant : Before you go any further, pal, I gotta tell ya it's cash up front. A thousand bucks a day for a full investigation, another thou' if the assailant is caught. Do you understand?

    Harry Canyon : Yeah. Hey, here's a dollar. Thanks for nothin'.

    Desk Sergeant : Think you can do better?... Punk.

  • Harry Canyon : [about the redhead]  Pretty but dumb. Even though she was gonna kill me, I kinda felt sorry for her. She was okay, just a little greedy. As for me, I put it down as a two-day ride with one hell of a tip.
