- Callahan: "I may have to move fast, and I don't need too much linguini to hold me back."
- DiGiorgio: "You got a lot of class, Harry."
1976's The Enforcer is, chronologically, the third of five in the Dirty Harry series, and maybe it's my favorite of the bunch. It's as violent as its predecessors, and Eastwood is as laconic and as insubordinate and engages in several cool action sequences. The decider for me was the inclusion of Tyne Daly whose character ends up the perfect foil to our iconoclastic SFPD Homicide Inspector. The Enforcer was intended to be the capper to what was originally supposed to be a trilogy, except these movies kept on making money and Dirty Harry kept on being just too damn popular .
Callahan's at it again, as the movie opens. He and his partner, Frank DiGiorgio (John Mitchum), spend the morning first responding to a restaurant emergency - in which Harry cures a heart attack victim in his own inimitable way - and then to an all units call to a liquor store hold-up. Harry's excessive methods resolve the incident but result in injured hostages and $14,379 in property damage, rendering his superiors incredibly pissed. So, for saving the day, Harry's taken off Homicide (again!) and transferred to Personnel. (Harry's rebuttal: "Personnel? That's for a--holes!")
We find out that Callahan isn't a fan of affirmative action, not when it imperils badges on the streets. As part of the interview board to promote candidates to Inspector, he rips into a nervous Kate Moore (Daly) who's been on the force for nine years, yeah, but in the Personnel & Records Dept.Read more ›
