The Dirty Harry Films / Missing scene from Magnum Force
« on: December 02, 2002, 10:28:30 PM »
On the old Board, Stranger posted that he'd found a contact for David Soul, who played one of the "Death Squad" cops in Magnum Force, and that he'd e-mailed him to ask about his recollections of one of the "missing scenes" in the film.

I thought I'd post a description of that scene here, while we're waiting ... it's from "Jake"'s excellent Dirty Harry site, www.the-dirtiest.com ... Magnum Force Cuts.

Davis' Speech

After leaving Charlie McCoy's family at the airport, Harry and Davis drive back together.  Davis needs cigarettes, so they stop off at a bowling alley and decide to grab a beer.  As they enter, a group of young people leave and are quickly followed by two guys in work uniforms.  Davis suspects something and follows them around the building.  He arrives to find the two guys beating the lone black kid of the group.  As he begins fighting off one of the attackers, the other charges with him a knife.

 Harry appears, beer in hand, only to smash the charging attacker's head with the bottle.  He then rushes to the young boy's aid and attempts to revive him, but he is already dead.  (The boy's friends have informed them that he has a heart condition.)  Turning his attention back to the struggle, he sees Davis slam the other man's head into a car fender.  When Harry points out that the man was already unconscious, Davis simply smiles, "I know,".  By now, several onlookers have gathered around the young boy's body.

Davis addresses the crowd, asking them how much longer they will tolerate this sort of criminal behavior in their city.  As his speech becomes more heated, Harry stands back, taking it all in curiously.  One of the largest scenes to be cut from the series, possibly to avoid another racially motivated death (after Charlie Russell's death in Dirty Harry), or to avoid giving Harry another clue that he didn't really need.

Yes, it is the Screen Actor's Guild who is giving Clint a lifetime achievement award this Spring. Check out the press release HERE.

The awards ceremony is to be held Sunday March 9, 2003. It airs on TNT here in The States, I don't know about internationally.

SAG has been giving this award since 1962. Liz Taylor and Robert Redford are really the only other two actors of Clint's age and generation to receive this honor so far. Ed "Lou Grant" Asner got it last year.
