Dirty Harry is on the trail of vigilante cops who are not above going beyond the law to kill the city's undesirables.
Film debut of Robert Urich (Officer Mike Grimes).
This is a 44. Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and it could blow your head clean off. Do you feel lucky?
After Callahan removes the bomb from his own mailbox, he looks up at a man on the nearby stairs. As a car drives by on the street, the lights from it cast the shadow of the boom operator onto the wall.
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.
