1. Eastwood. Without the 29, there is no Dirty Harry
2. Joe Friday. Always had his smith with him, and the BADDEST TV cop ever
3. Chuck Norris. He's just plain bad. and I thought it was a 6" 629 he carried, but I could be wrong

Sonny Crockett was cool, but not a dedicated Smith guy. The TV show replaced his Bren 10 after about the first season, and never mentioned the new gun (probably hoping none of the viewers would notice)
Two honorable mentions, Sledge Hammer cause you gotta love a show that opens by panning all over the 629, and Maxwell Smart, who could squeeze hundreds of rounds out of his snubby and only run out when the bad guy did too.

ME!!

I was in a local commercial in the Birmingham, Alabama area, back in the 1980s, as a police officer capturing a burgler at a furniture store. Of course, I was carrying a Smith & Wesson on my hip. In fact, it was a 4" M24-3.

"I know what you're thinking punk did he shoot six shots or only five. Too tell you the truth, I forgot myself in all this excitement. Being this a 44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and can blow your head clean off, you are going to have to ask yourself a question, 'do I
feel lucky? Well, do you punk?'"

Did Charles Bronon in the Death Wish series use a S&W?

1. Clint Eastwood, Inspector Harry Callahan, Dirty Harry - this is the one by which all others are measured, hands down, no doubt, without question

2. Chuck Norris, McQuade, Lone Wolf McQuade - probably the best, most believable, least hokey of all the Chuck Norris movies. Chuck has to come in second, because HE was the baddest guy in the movies, the S&W was just a prop.

"Chuck Norris and Superman once fought each other on a bet. The loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants."

"In this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig."

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

This picture should go with the post above, become a sticky, and these two declared the baddest mofo's to wield a Smith and Wesson:

The baddest would have to be Léon (played by Jean Reno) in "Léon: The Professional". He used a 6" S&W 586 in several scenes. If you haven't seen it you should. I am convinced that Léon is the baddest movie character ever.

I've been on TV a few times, perps walks, crime scenes and such, and was carrying a S&W at the time. Does that count?

Bernard P. Fife was known to weild a Colt Official Police with a 4" tube. I have heard that he sometimes had a S&W M&P, but I have yet to personally see a clear picture to verify same.

He does kick some major *** in that movie, then turns out to have a big heart. One of my favs.

John Wayne in McQ. He carried a number of guns but during the snatching of the drugs in the hospital he was packing a snub Model 10.

I am goling to have to go with Clint Eastwood here.He has been a great on screen representative for S&W.Why?He really likes them.
I will admit that I have not read every one of the post responses here ,so this may have already been mentioned.If so,my apologies.
If anyone remembers "The Gauntlet" you may also remember that Eastwood was using either a Mod.19 or 66(I can't remember which myself). If you look closely at the scene where he was in the phonebooth you will see that it was one of the 2 1/2 inch square butt versions,very rare.
It has been said that this was one of the production models and not a converted one,and this particular revolver was actually Eastwood's own personal gun. I saw an article on that several years ago.
Then we have the Big .44 in the Dirty Harry flicks,along with the Bloodwork gun,named because of the movie of the same name.
I think he best typifies an S&W revolver fan in his on screen persona.

George Clooney (Seth Gecko) carried an Astra Terminator .44 Magnum in Dusk Till Dawn, not a Smith & Wesson. He's a goof anyway.

Dirty Harry was a little bit before my time but Clint is still the toughest around. My wife said it the best referring to Clint in grand tarino "that guy doesn't even say anything and he looks tough"

I vote Clint for all the stated reasons.

Also, I know it wasn't a smith in that movie, but one of my favorite quotes was...."dyin' ain't much of a livin' boy"

Robert Culp as Texas Ranger Hoby Gilman in the TV series Trackdown. He carried a Smith & Wesson .45 Schofield instead of the Colt that almost every other TV western hero carried.

How bad was he? The episodes were often from actual Texas Ranger case files, and the show was endorsed by the Texas Rangers and the State of Texas. Also, Steve McQueen's Josh Randall of Wanted: Dead or Alive was introduced in an espisode titled "The Bounty Hunter."

Robert Culp and Steve McQueen had raced motorcycles together in New York. Culp convinced McQueen to join him in LA where he started his stellar career. The guy who was responsible for Steve McQueen's TV and movie career has to be "bad."

Don't forget Snake Plissken in Escape from New York and Escape from L.A. I believe a scoped Model 67 in the first and then a couple of beautiful Performance Center N-frames in the second.

What about all the old detective shows...Cannon, Barnaby Jones, etc. If I recall on of the detectives uses his j frame snubbie to shoot down a small aircraft chasing him. These guys could consistently hit a man with a rifle who was shooting at them, stop speeding cars and get off up to 11 rounds without reloading their j frames.

George Clooney in from Dusk to Dawn with the 4" N frame..
I recall seeing McGarrett shoot a bad guy at like 200 or 300 yards with his J frame. Now that's bad!

Didn't Stallone carry a J frame in Tango and Cash?

Billy (Greg Bryk) in "A history of violence" uses a S&W model 13. That character was really a bad man!

It has to be Commando Cody, who saved the world from the Rocket Men from the Moon, I think it was a Model 21 or 22..and the bad guys on earth used the same one, including Clayton Moore before he started wearing a mask..this was in a Saturday Morning Serial shown at the movies but even on DVD it is like sitting in the audience and eating nickel pickles and $.10 popcorn..
