"I mainly bought this DVD box set for Dirty Harry, the first R-rated flick I got to see by myself when I was a kid in '71. (I'd been turned away from Play Misty For Me earlier that year.) Eastwood's and Andy (Scorpio) Robinson's acting was so intense, and Lalo Schifrin's music was so ultra-cool, that I sat thru the film twice.
I'd seen this three-pack in stores but never picked it up because there's absolutely no info (full-screen? widescreen? features?) printed on the box. Turns out, the Dirty Harry DVD is 2.35:1 widescreen with lots of extras, including a vintage short and a new 30 min. documentary with cast, crew and fans (Arnold Schwarzenegger, John Milius, etc.).
Magnum Force (1973) is 2.35:1 widescreen, and Tightrope (1984) is 1.85:1 widescreen."
It's "Classic Clint!!!!!" Enough said!

"The movies sell themselves. However, they are not the first in the "Dirty Harry" series I was trying to find as a set. It was as close as I could come to it. I had a hard time finding these the way it was. I'll have to purchase "Sudden Impact" seperately. This was also the best price I could find on the web from a reputable source. Fast delivery. Very Satisfied.
A good deal

"When you figure that all these movies go for about 13-15 dollars each elsewhere, it's a good deal. Individually, the choice of movies is odd. While the first two Dirty Harry movies are the better of the series, and entertaining, the psychological horror of tightrope almost feels misplaced. Perhaps Dirty Harry, tightrope, and another non-dirty harry copy movie would have been better. Regardless, the movies themselves are all good, and worthy of purchase."

"If you are a "Dirty Harry" fan this set is a must. wonderful. I wish more of the movies were on DVD."
