Dirty Harry (1971)

Director: Don Siegel
Cast: Clint Eastwood, Reni Santoni, Harry Guardino and Andy Mitchum

Dirty Harry catapulted Eastwood to iconoclastic stardom as the flinty San Francisco cop and ushered in a slew of violent action pictures, including three sequels, that shocked moviegoers away from the mellow movies of the '60s.
