Dirty Harry Tops 'Guy Movie' Poll

CLINT EASTWOOD's 1972 DIRTY HARRY film has topped a new poll of The 50 Best Guy Movies.

The cop drama, in which Eastwood plays ruthless DETECTIVE HARRY CALLAHAN, beat THE GODFATHER, SCARFACE and DIE HARD to the top spot.

Meanwhile, Eastwood and PAUL NEWMAN are the kings of the guy movie genre, according to the MEN'S JOURNAL poll, with three movies each making the list, and the 1980s was the best decade, with 14 films featured.

And the guy movie isn't all about action, it seems, although nine of the top 10 films feature plenty of it - comedies like CADDYSHACK, BLAZING SADDLES and ANIMAL HOUSE also make the top 50 list.

The full top 10 is:

1. DIRTY HARRY

2. THE GODFATHER

3. SCARFACE

4. DIE HARD

5. THE TERMINATOR

6. MAD MAX 2: THE ROAD WARRIOR

7. THE DIRTY DOZEN

8. THE MATRIX

9. CADDYSHACK

10. ROCKY
