Dirty Harry propelled Eastwood from movie star to superstar status and pretty much invented the quotable, wisecracking hero genre. (“Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?”) The actors rounding out the film’s cast include; Harry Guardino (Lt. Al Bressler), John Vernon (The Mayor), Reni Santoni (Chico) and Andrew Robinson as the “Scorpio Killer.”
