Harry Callahan known as Dirty Harry for his above the law instinct image in San Francisco Police Department. This is Clint Eastwood’s signature classic role. Roof top homicide Killer Scorpio holds the city ransom with threat of killing again. Harry confronted him so many times but the killer luckily escaped so many times during the chase; until the thrilling climax when he nabbed him.
