The Dirty Harry Films / Re: The Enforcer Shades
« on: April 21, 2011, 04:50:48 PM »
Hi All--
I noticed there was a thread devoted to Harry's shades, but I wanted to start a new thread as I recently found something interesting:

These look to me to be the same shades that Clint wore for THE ENFORCER.  Can anybody confirm this?


Hi All--
I'm new to the board, but I've been lurking for some time.  Clint Eastwood is one of the greatest screen actors to grace the screen--in particular, his Harry Callahan character is as timeless as The Man With No Name from Sergio Leone's great '60s Spaghetti Western trifecta.  It's nice to see so many fervent Eastwoodians.

Anyway, to get on topic, I recall Dean "The Dream" Winters very fondly from his role as Ryan O'Reilly in HBO's gritty prison drama, OZ.  While I like Dean, he's NO Harry Callahan.  I say this for two reasons: Clint made Harry his--and his alone; second, thinking about Dean in his role as O'Reilly from OZ, he portrayed a cunning, conniving psychopath with a well-developed set of survival skills, and that doesn't mesh well with the image that I have of the tough, ferocious--but always honorable--Harry Callahan.  I just can't image a portrayal of Harry coming from him.


P.S.--Like a few others have stated, I must agree: let's spare DIRTY HARRY the anguish of a pathetically inferior remake.  Too many other classics have been tarnished by these remake shenanigans.
