Superstar and Academy Award-winner Clint Eastwood ("Million Dollar Baby", "Unforgiven"), breaks all his prior records as he reprises his classic role as "Dirty Harry" Callahan. This time, Harry tracks down a revenge-obsessed murderess (Sondra Locke) while local mobsters are gunning for him. The Hollywood Reporter calls Eastwood "a very good action director... he knows how to make the gut tighten and the skin crawl as the tension mounts." "A great audience picture" says Roger Ebert. "(It) has all the action anyone could want," says The New York Post. Dirty Harry will "make your day" in one of 1984's biggest box-office hits.
