Snapshot: Harry gets dirty on two wheels

Peter Fonda’s not the only Hollywood star to take to two wheels. In various movies, Clint ‘Dirty Harry’ Eastwood often grabbed a passer-by’s Bonneville or Harley in order to pursue the bad guys or make good his escape.

This still from ‘The Gauntlet’ shows Eastwood playing down-at-heel alcoholic cop Ben Shockley, rescuing the film’s leading female interest, Sondra Locke. They are two-up on a chopper. It’s a dangerous scene: guns and bullets are one thing, but no helmets? (And we don’t rate the protective clothing, either.)
