ABOUT THE MOVIE
This was the one that started it all, the first of five in the franchise that focused on “Inspector Callahan” known as Dirty Harry starring Clint Eastwood.
The movie also starred Andy Robinson, Harry Guardino, Second City alum
Reni Santoni and a guy who always played an unlikeable character in the ’70s, John Vernon who Eastwood would work with again on The Outlaw Josey Wales.
The film drew upon the real-life case of the Zodiac Killer as the Callahan character seeks out a similar vicious psychopath.
The movie was budgeted at 4 million dollars and brought in over 36 million dollars at the box office.
