Don Siegel, 1980

I'm experimenting, none too successfully, with using Blogger to post .jpgs of print articles. This piece appeared in the L.A. Reader on October 24, 1980 on the occasion of a Don Siegel retrospective at USC. I am as always embarrassed by my never-in-doubt writing persona at age 25, and my assessment of the politics of Dirty Harry was plainly inadequate to the complexity of the issue; but a few of the ideas still seem worthwhile.
