I am writing another story and need some help. How exactly did Dirty Harry finish this line?

".44 Magnum. The most powerful hangun..."

Was it "... in the world."?

I can't remember for sure and I need to get it right. Thanks.

David

This being a .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, it would blow your head clean off.

From IMDB:

"Harry Callahan: 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 kind of lost track myself. But being as 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 a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"

The best part though is when the wounded bank robber laying on the ground says "I gots to know!" and Callahan turns, points the gun at him and CLICK!

Frank Sinatra was going to play SFPD Inp Harry Callahan before the role went to Clint Eastwood.

The producers/prop dept used a .41magnum(not a .44) in the first Dirty Harry film.

In MAGNUM FORCE(www.imdb.com) Dirty Harry explains that he uses .44spl loads not magnum rounds for LE use. ;)

If you watch the Dirty Harry films closely you can see that Harry/Clint uses a 6" bar model 29 .44mag in his shoulder holster scenes but in gunfights/close-ups/etc he uses a larger 8 3/8 inch barrel model 29 .44magnum.

Ahh movie magic! :D

and in the real world, the punk would have put his hand up to his ear and yelled "WHAT?"

This is a .44 magnum, the most powerful popgun in the world, and I am going to blow your a$$ off if you don't squat and give me 20 Hail Marys right now!

Or, something like that. After too many late night movies, my ability to quote Clint accurately wanders into the mist, obscured by gunsmoke and leather burns.

I liked it better at the end, where the Punk laughs and goes for his gun, and Harry's gun goes "BOOM!"

My favorite part is spraying the hotdog when he says "Sh*t!" and munching it the whole rest of the scene.

Besides fit, finish, firepower, and fun, this right here is why 29s are my favorite guns.

Thanks for the clips!

The famous quote is the work of John Milius. He also did the final version of the famous USS Indianapolis tale in "Jaws." Hollywood goes to him when it needs to get squared away on some matter of military history or ballistics. Though not as often as it should, sadly.

Hmm...I thought I had read that the S&W in "Dirty Harry" was actually a Model 25, not a Model 29, because the M25 could fire 5-in-1 blanks. But I can't seem to locate that article now. The Imdb trivia for the movie also says that it's a Model 57 (.41 Mag)

Oh, well. I guess it just goes to show that there's a fine line between trivia and bullsquat.
