Reni Santoni (1939-2020) - Dirty Harry, Seinfeld -


Recommended Posts

Most partners of San Francisco Police Inspector Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) were unlucky. In "Dirty Harry" (1971), Santoni's character, Inspector Chico Gonzalez, was shot up during a gun battle and sidelined because of his wounds. He contemplated quitting the force and becoming a teacher.

In "Magnum Force" (1973), Inspector Earlington "Early" Smith (Felton Perry) was blown up after vigilante cops planted a bomb in his mailbox.

Callahan's first partner in 1976's "The Enforcer," Inspector Frank DiGiorgio (played by John Mitchum, the brother of Robert), was stabbed in the back while trying to stop a warehouse robbery in progress. He died in a hospital.

Also in "The Enforcer," Inspector Kate Moore (Tyne Daly) was mortally wounded  during a shoot-out with kidnappers  at the old Alcatraz prison. She saved Callahan's life moments before she lost hers.

In "The Dead Pool" (1988), Callahan suggested that Inspector Al Quan (Evan C. Kim) wear a bulletproof vest since "most of my partners end up in the hospital or dead." The advice saved Quan's life.

Sorry to hear. His Poppie on Seinfeld was a classic. Have seen him in films like Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, as well.
