How was he in Rawhide? How come I never seen reruns of that show with him?
Hey Chilboa, where did you recently pick up The Dead Pool from?!
Firefox from 1982 at #7 is very surprising to me. Saw it in the theatre at the time but can't remember if it's a good movie or not. Definitely a forgotten film.
I watched The Enforcer recently (on HBO) and this is a really bad movie. I love Dirty Harry and Magnum Force is also good, but this one has the dumbest script I think I have ever seen Clint involved with. The character Tyne Daly is playing is just beyond absurd and this fact torpedoes the movie for me. The "villains" are over the top as usual for a Dirty Harry movie, but these are a bit more cartoonish than in the other installments. The Alcatraz setting for the showdown was cool, but Harry's proficiency at using a LAW after watching one demo is a bit silly (but forgivable). Just awful....
I'd settle for these:
Pale Rider (1985)
Honkytonk Man (1982)
Bronco Billy (1980)
Escape from Alcatraz (1979)
The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976)
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974)
Magnum Force (1973)
High Plains Drifter (1973)
Dirty Harry (1971)
Play Misty for Me (1971)
The Beguiled (1971)
Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970)
Kelly's Heroes (1970)
Where Eagles Dare (1969)
Coogan's Bluff (1968)
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
For a Few Dollars More (1965)
A Fistful of Dollars (1964)
And I'd hum and hah over the inclusion of Pale Rider, Kelly's Heroes and Magnum Force, all of which I like, but...
The best, I think, are Bird, Honkytonk Man, Josey Wales, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Harry, Misty, The Good, the Bad etc (and maybe High Plains...). From the later stuff: Unforgiven, A Perfect World, In the Line of Fire, Mystic River, The Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, Changeling.
Firefox is a complete bore
They made a really boring laser-disc video game from that movie:
High Plains Drifter is one of my absolute favorites.
I think it is kinda slow until he steals the jet, I enjoy it more after that.
I was thinking the same thing, but I've seen it. It's a Hammer film about a coven set in England and I knew he couldn't be in it..but, there is another Italian film same name/same year called Le Streghe, which he is in.
It's on ME TV.
Yeah, he played Rowdy Yates - it's on the the first things I remember him from as a child (of the 70's with 5 channels.)
Jeannie and Darren are in this episode too.
Still rate Magnum Force.
Gran Torino his son Scott is in it.
This is a film that begs repeat viewings. In aging Dirty Harry mode, Clint sure does play a snarly old dude effectively.
I like Firefox, a personal fave
What's up with Clint's voice, laryngitis ?
"Shut your face hippie"
I remember reading a review when the movie came out that his voice was supposed to be from an old shrapnel injury to the throat. I don't know what that was based on or if it is correct, as there is no mention of it in the movie, but it helped it make more sense to me.
A bit of spin to sell the movie.
Think he had vocal node op.
How was he ?
Great! DVD Box Set available I believe.
the part where he has that exchange:
they say they want a car
what are you gonna do, Harry?
Give it to 'em!
and then rams his car into the bank is one of my all time favorite scenes in a movie.
Great soundtrack though. Used to have the poster on my wall next to one of Josey Wales.
I may be the only person in the world who feels this way, but i think ''Honky Tonk Man'' is a little gem of a movie, VERY underrated..
The Dead Pool.
Ha! Jim Carrey & Liam Neeson.
Guns N' Roses( uncredited)
Every time I hear that GN'R song I think of Jim Carrey in the freezer. Funny.
Dunno how popular this film was, but it was Clint's last Dirty Harry outing
