By the end of the 1960s and starring in a string of westerns, Eastwood had become one of the biggest stars in the world.
While he was laying the foundation for what turned out to be an acclaimed and award-winning career as a director, Eastwood joined created one of the most memorable and controversial characters of the late 20th century. In "Dirty Harry" (1971), he played Inspector Harry Callahan, a loose cannon San Francisco detective who liked to shoot first and ask questions later.
"Dirty Harry" was an enormous success at the box office, while the character himself entered the halls of cinematic infamy with the line, "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 one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do you, punk?"
