Donelly in Sudden Impact

Status: Alive

One of Harry Callahan's superiors, who appears in the last two films Sudden Impact and The Dead Pool as a supporting character. He is a lieutenant in Sudden Impact and a captain in the Dead Pool.

Much like Lt. Bressler, he is generally more on Harry's side and defense compared to Harry's other superiors.

In Sudden Impact he decides to send Harry to San Paulo to investigate Wilbur's background information regarding his murder. He is frustrated that death and destruction surrounds Callahan but has concern for Callahan's safety.

In the Dead Pool he returns again as Harry's boss and partners him with Al Quan. He along with Harry gets annoyed by Lt. Ackerman. Donnelly also lets Harry get away with a lot more stuff compared to his previous superiors.

He was played by the late Michael Currie.
