Playing police stooge Ben Shockley, Clint Eastwood sends up his Dirty Harry-ness in this 1977 cop film-action movie-romantic comedy. Ben is assigned to escort tough Vegas hooker Gus Mally (Sondra Locke) to Phoenix for a Mob trial because, he thinks, he always "gets the job done." But corrupt commissioner Blakelock (William Prince)
chose alcoholic Ben precisely because Ben does not get much done at
all, and Blakelock has no intention of letting them get to Phoenix
alive. Once Gus figures this out and makes Ben see the truth, Ben
resolves to prove Blakelock wrong, even if it means surviving car bombs,
a house shot to pieces, a helicopter-motorcycle chase, and finally
driving an armored bus through a gauntlet formed by scores of shooting
cops. Amidst the mayhem, Ben falls in love with the smart-mouthed,
college-educated Gus, and she insists on riding out the gauntlet with
her Ben. An obedient cop who is not as clever as his female charge, Ben
Shockley is the opposite of Eastwood's ultra-capable loner Harry
Callahan from the Dirty Harry
series, allowing Eastwood to poke fun at his image even as Shockley
eventually does get the job done. While the exaggerated action set
pieces also parody the Eastwood cop hero's usual invincibility, their
efficient, energetic staging still makes them effective; The Gauntlet was another popular success for Eastwood as director as well as star.
