Dirty Harry is on the trail of vigilante cops who are not above going beyond the law to kill the city's undesirables.
The only Dirty Harry movie where Albert Popwell and Clint Eastwood do not share scenes (except The Dead Pool, where Popwell does not appear at all)
This is a 44. Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and it could blow your head clean off. Do you feel lucky?
In the chase with Harry and Briggs, Harry's car passes the same Austin 1300, parked on the left, twice.
The credits are played over a hand (presumably Harry's) holding a 44 Magnum against a red background. As such, this is the only Dirty Harry movie in which the opening credits are not played over San Francisco scenery.
The Swedish rental VHS has some cuts for violent content. Most notably the killing of the pimp; only two shots are fired instead of six.
$6,871,011 (USA) (30 December 1973)
