Dirty Harry is on the trail of vigilante cops who are not above going beyond the law to kill the city's undesirables.
Hal Holbrook played a very similar character in a very similar scheme film called Star Chamber, also speaking of vigilante cops.
This is a 44. Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and it could blow your head clean off. Do you feel lucky?
Reflected in the glass in the shooting practice room.
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.
