    For what it's worth, a series of novels in the 80's (approved by the Finks, who created the character, I believe) named Harry as a native of Boston, hinting he left for the West Coast after his wife died in a car crash caused by a drunk driver (as mentioned in the first film).
    I should have known he was the great great grandson of John L. Sullivan.

One can easily imagine Harry Callahan as the grandson of one of those high caliber pugilist who fought under very near bare knuckle rules for mere pocket change. [quote]

    I think after Tuesday that's going to be a very difficult proposition.

    Absolutely. He's got that quiet don't-mess-with-me persona.

    Saw Gran Torino yesterday. Pretty good but I guess I was disappointed a bit. Looking forward now to seeing Taken, which has to have the best preview for a movie I've ever seen. Liam Neeson is positively frightening in that preview.

    Not literally. Maybe the last openly racist/sexist pig.

    Finally got to see Gran Torino. Pretty powerful movie. It did not dissapoint as entertainment. I knew what was coming but kept wanting to re-write the ending.

    Holiday guests disrupted my movie schedule but I took the last of them to the airport Monday. Dirty Harry is my all time fictional movie hero and Gran Torino is first up when it gets here.

    I've thought for a while now that the Dirty Harry franchise should be started up again, a' la Bond. A different (younger!) actor, but the flavor retained with Clint himself directing.

    You will be both appalled at his -isms, yet amused by his cavalier attitude. I gasped and laughed a lot.
