Plot In one of his signature roles, Clint Eastwood plays a streetwise San Francisco police detective who gets the job done. A rooftop sniper (Andy Robinson) calling himself Scorpio has killed twice. Now he's buried a young women alive and threatens to let her suffocate unless the city pays ransom. Harry Callahan will nail the prep..one way or the other... no matter what "the system" prescribes. Filming on location, director Don Siegel made the City by the Bay a vital part of Dirty Harry, a practice continued in its four sequels. The original remains one of the best police thrillers ever made.

Plot Philo Beddoe is your regular, easygoing, truck-driving guy. He's also the best barroom brawler west of the Rockies. And he lives with a 165-pound orangutan named Clyde. Like other guys, Philo finally falls in love - with a flighty singer who leads him on a screwball chase across the American Southwest. Nothing's in the way except a motorcycle gang, two sneaky off-duty cops and legendary brawler Tank Murdock. Every Which Way But Loose was a change of pace for Clint Eastwood- and it proved to be one of his most popular films. With a soaring country score and a solid supporting cast including Sondra Locke, Geoffrey Lewis, Beverly D'Angelo and the great Ruth Gordon, it's in every which possible a grand time for all.

Plot The Classic Thriller Of An Experiment Gone Wrong!
The Fly
A brilliant scientist becomes obsessed with perfecting a device that can transmit matter from one location to another. Successful in his initial test, he experiments with a human guinea pig -- himself. But an ordinary housefly makes the journey with him, and when they emerge, both creatures have been extraordinarily changed. This is the chilling story of a man fighting to retain his humanity, and a desperate woman's attempt to save the man she loves.

Return Of The Fly
The boundaries of science are pushed to their eery limits in this sequel to the classic, ever-popular The Fly. Here, Philippe, the son of the ill-fated scientist, naively continues his father's misguided experiments. The victim of his traitorous assistant's greedy ambitions, Philippe finds himself in a terrifying limbo -- he's grown the head and limbs of a fly! Taking spectacular revenge on his betrayers, Philippe must also race against time and find a way to reverse the horrifying mutation.
