Having starred in and directed countless films during his glittering, five-decade-long career, the role Clint Eastwood is arguably best known for is maverick San Francisco cop Dirty Harry. The five-time Oscar winner got a chance to re-connect with the iconic character this week when he was guest of honour at an LA party to launch a collector's edition of the films.

Joining the dad of seven at the event was his daughter Alison Eastwood; who was also at Clint's side at the Cannes Film Festival.

The pretty blonde - his youngest daughter with first wife Maggie Johnson - has carved out a film career of her own, and recently followed her father's example by stepping behind the camera. Her directorial debut, drama Rails & Ties, received positive reviews when it hit screens last year.

Other familiar faces at the bash, which featured a special screening of scenes from the Dirty Harry series, included Clint's close friend John Voight, Angelina Jolie's actor father.
