Now THAT's a Really Nice Score LC...!!
Dirty Harry...circa 1971
" I know what you're thinking: 'Did he fire six shots or only five ?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky ?' Well, do you, punk ? "
Director John Milius owns one of the actual S&W Model 29's used in principal photography in Dirty Harry and Magnum Force. As of March 2012 it is on loan to the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia, and is in the Hollywood Guns display in the William B. Ruger Gallery.
Also in 2012, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant."
