"Joining the Dead Pool? Don't bet against Harry!"


Plot
Fifth entry in the "Dirty Harry" series. Here, Eastwood becomes embroiled in a string of murders involving a game called the "Dead Pool," involving a list of celebrities likely to die soon, from which participants wager on who will die first. The game is being played on the set of a cheap horror film directed by infamous horror film director Liam Neeson, and as the celebrities begin to die off, he becomes the most likely suspect in the murders.

Listen as Clint Eastwood speaks openly about his thoughts on this film and why it will most likely be the last of the Dirty Harry series.


Trivia
  • Eastwood had intimated that Harry Callahan had retired for good, but this film proved him wrong. It is safe to assume Harry is no longer on the force.
  • Permission was given to film in San Francisco, despite protests from citizens who thought Dirty Harry was not a good representative for the city.
  • This was Clint's last film as Mayor of Carmel.
  • Look out for Jim Carrey as short-lived rock star Johnny Squares.
