Overview

In the 1960s, Clint Eastwood was best known as a TV cowboy and the star of a handful of unusual Italian Westerns. In 1972, that all changed when Eastwood starred in the smash hit action-drama Dirty Harry, which overnight made him into a major film star and one of Hollywood's most durable icons of the '70s and '80s. The Dirty Harry Collection is a five-volume box set that collects all five films in which Eastwood plays tough-as-nails detective "Dirty Harry" Callahan: Dirty Harry, Magnum Force, The Enforcer, Sudden Impact, and The Dead Pool.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
By 1971, Clint Eastwood’s place in the cinematic firmament was already secure, owing to his presence in a slew of wildly successful spaghetti westerns. But he lucked into another iconic characterization when he chose to play a two-fisted, taciturn San Francisco police detective in that year’s Dirty Harry, a low-budget thriller directed by B-movie veteran Don Siegel (Invasion of the Body Snatchers). As hard-boiled Harry Callahan, detailed to track down a rooftop sniper named Scorpio, Eastwood redefined a familiar movie archetype -- the incorruptible cop-cum-avenging angel -- and helped usher in a new era of graphically violent, urban-based action films. Magnum Force (1973, directed by TV movie specialist Ted Post), which is even more violent than its predecessor, finds Callahan trailing fellow cops who operate outside the law as merciless vigilantes. The Enforcer (1976, James Fargo) gently toys with the Dirty Harry persona by saddling him with a politically correct partner (Tyne Daly), with whom he pursues a highly organized band of domestic terrorists. Sudden Impact hit seven years after The Enforcer -- a period in which Dirty Harry had risen to pop culture legend thanks to the TV syndication and home video distribution of the earlier films. His lone directorial effort in the series, Sudden Impact, co-stars Eastwood's then-flame, Sondra Locke, as a vengeful rape victim systematically tracking and killing the men who attacked her. This fourth series entry also reflected Harry’s mythic status and was seen in some quarters as a gentle self-parody. There are no such undercurrents in The Dead Pool (1988, Buddy Van Horn), a straightforward thriller in which an aging, world-weary Harry is always one step behind an unseen killer of celebrities. The first two Dirty Harry movies are clearly the best; they’re edgier, more vigorous shoot-’em-ups than the increasingly self-conscious, expensive entries that followed. But in each film Eastwood towers as an uncomplicated man of action, meting out his own brand of justice in a refreshingly direct, albeit violent, fashion. Harry's catchphrase -- "Make my day" -- ranks among the most ripe and repeated messages in cinema, and his exploits will no doubt entertain cultural anthropologists for years to come. Fans will certainly want this new DVD box set collecting all five films, which have been digitally remastered for optimum image and sound quality.
