Your thoughts on this movie.....

When a mad man calling himself 'the Scorpio Killer' menaces the city, tough as nails San Francisco Police Inspector Harry Callahan is assigned to track down and ferret out the crazed psychopath.

This is not one, in my opinion, that can ever be remade successfully.

I cannot imagine anyone else ever playing the role without paling in comparison to Clint.

Doc, did you know that this film was made with Frank Sinatra in mind? I know, it makes you feel pretty dizzy to even contemplate such a thing!

Scorpio is one of the best baddies in cinematic history I'm sure you'll agree! With his mad flowing hair, his terrified look when Harry is after him, his purple faced mutant look after the black guy gives him a pasting or his Spider-Man mask and scream when Harry stabs him in the leg after receiving a beating, no other Dirty Harry villain can beat this guy!

I didn't know about the Frank Sinatra thing, Michael.

And yes, what an astounding performance from Andrew Robinson.

Another reason why they should never bother remaking this.

Sorry, JB! Please excuse the faux pas!

I suspect I have been calling Micael JB at the same time.

I will be calling Ant-Mac, Mad-Pac next - or vice versa!

I think watching New Who has damaged my cerebral cortex. :emoji_head_bandage:
