Dirty Harry

Continuity mistake: When Scorpio tells the children in the school bus that they are going to the ice-cream factory, there is a boy wearing a red T-shirt and he is sitting next to the aisle. When the camera changes to behind Scorpio in the next shot, the boy is now sitting next to the window.

Audio problem: When Harry shoots Scorpio in the leg on the football field, as he walks towards him, Scorpio shouts out "Don't do anything more! No! No!" If you look at Scorpio's face, however, you can see his mouth is not moving in sync with what he is saying.

Continuity mistake: When the boy in the school bus says he wants to go home to see his mother, he raises his hand. In the next shot when Scorpio goes up to him, his hand is seen lowered, and when Scorpio smacks the boy, his hand is raised again.

Revealing mistake: When Scorpio robs the liquor store, the bottle that he was going to purchase is used to hit the clerk over the head, but you can see it is empty.

Other mistake: In the beginning credits of the movie, we see Harry Callahan approaching the swimming pool where the girl was shot. Next we can see some blood in the water of the pool. By the time Callahan gets there, the blood should have diffused already.

Continuity mistake: In one scene, Harry's bulldog is an un-neutered male. The next scene in which the dog appears, it is a female.

Revealing mistake: When Scorpio slaps the boy in the school bus, you can see that Scorpio's hand actually misses the boy's face.

Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking."Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But 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 a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya punk?
