Dave Toschi

Sending out an RIP to a true San Francisco legend, David Toschi, who passed at age 86. Detective Toschi hunted the Zodiac killer and was the inspiration for both Frank Bullitt and Harry Callahan.

One of the great moments in film history occurs when Mark Ruffalo, playing Dave Toschi in David Fincher's Zodiac, attends a screening of Dirty Harry, in which Clint Eastwood plays a character based on Dave Toschi. That scene is so meta-Toschi that it's Toschis all the way down.

And, of course, fans of Star Wars will recognize Dave as the namesake of Tatooine's premiere power converter shopping center, Tosche Station
