Clint Eastwood: Political correctness would stop Dirty Harry being made today

This is almost without doubt. It certainly wouldn’t have been filmed in San Francisco. Maybe if Quenton Tarantino directed it in a smarmy way with lots and lots of virtue signaling to the sensitive classes. Maybe then. But probably not even then.

Clint Eastwood thinks that his classic cop thriller ‘Dirty Harry’ couldn’t be made today, thanks to political correctness.

Speaking during an on-stage interview at the Cannes Film Festival, the 86-year-old actor and director said: “A lot of people thought it was politically incorrect.

“That was at the beginning of the era that we’re in now, where everybody thinks everyone’s politically correct. We’re killing ourselves by doing that.

“We’ve lost our sense of humour.”

‘Dirty Harry’ does feature as its antagonist a racist, homophobic serial murderer in actor Andy Robinson’s deranged Scorpio.
