Esther Anderson 6pm, Home And Away Dirty Harry ITV4, 10.10pm (1971) THE original and best Dirty Harry film introduced the world to one of cinemas most iconic characters. Inspector 71 Harry Callahan is a San Francisco cop who has to find a serial killer -- with the help of a .44-calibre Magnum and a number of doomed partners. Featuring excellent shots of Frisco and an awesome soundtrack. Stars Clint Eastwood, above. The Graduate ITV3, 11pm (1967) BENJAMIN BRADDOCK is an ambitious and promising young lad who is caught in a terrible situation. He is stuck in an affair with Mrs Robinson -- the wife of his fathers business partner -- and hes beginning to fall in love with her daughter Elaine. Stars Anne Bancroft and Dustin Hoffman, above, and watch for a brief glimpse of a young Richard Dreyfuss. The Bridges Of Madison County Film4, 6.20pm (1995) IT SEEMS like a bit of a clich to gush over a Meryl Streep performance -- but she is exceptional in this tearjerker from director (not Dirty Harry this time) Clint Eastwood, both above. Streep is Francesca Johnson, a housewife who falls for photographer Robert Kincaid. As Kincaid, Eastwoods acting is purposefully understated so as not to draw attention away from Streep. Million Dollar Baby Film4, 9pm (2004) WHATS going on? Is Clint Eastwood dead or something? In this flick hes a jaded boxing trainer who takes on a female contender. It won a gloveful of Oscars -- including best director for Eastwood, best actress for Hilary Swank (above with Clint) and also best supporting actor for Morgan Freeman. Oh yeah, it won best film as well. In all, a thoroughly convincing knockout. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html44.html45.html46.html47.html48.html49.html50.html51.html
