|Gun as icon - Eastwood as Dirty Harry|
Clint Eastwood is not to be confused with Ken Eastwood. If you are ever faced with the pub quiz question,"Which fellow Victorian replaced the sacked Bill Lawry in the Australian side for the 7th Test in 1971?", Eastwood is your answer.

Snow may have been a son of the vicarage and a part time poet, but put the ball in his hand and an Aussie batter 22 yards away and he turned mean. Proper Dirty Harry. It is a little known piece of movie trivia that it was Snow who originated Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry's greatest line. It came as he stood over Jenner at the end of his follow through:
"I know what you're thinking — 'Did he bowl six balls or only five?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But, being as this is John Snow, the most powerful fast bowler in the world and could blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"
