Sudden Impact

Factual error: In the final gun battle at the end of the film, Harry shoots the last bad guy so he falls off a high spot on the roller coaster and through the roof, into the carousel building. Yet as the credits roll, there is an aerial shot and you can see the carousel building at the left of the screen, with no hole in the roof. Also, the carousel building and the roller coaster are about 200 yards apart.

Trivia: Clint Eastwood's friend Horace, the black male first seen sneaking up on him with a shotgun is also in other movies with Dirty Harry. His first appearance is the first "punk" where Harry gives his famous "Do you feel lucky...?" line to. He also appears in the Enforcer as Mustafa, the black militant leader. He is also in the second, Magnum Force, playing a pimp who is followed in his Cadillac with tiger skin seat off the freeway by the corrupt traffic cops. He talks a little to the officer and then, like other dodgy characters in the film, is shot a few times.

Question: Although "Dirty Harry" successfully stopped an armed robber in Santa Cruz, wouldn't he face criminal charges himself?

Answer: Probably, but action/police movies often are unrealistic about depicting laws and police procedures.
