Three Days of the Condor (Paramount 1975, Robert Redford, Faye Dunaway)

Published

on


Jaw-clenching suspense with Redford as a bookworm CIA employee in New York who comes back from lunch one day to discover that the entire staff at his office has been massacred. Paranoid and convinced that he’s still being targeted, he kidnaps Dunaway for a place to hide.

He tracks the killer as the killer tracks him, getting closer with each deadly near-miss. Eventually, with Dunaway’s help, Redford encounters the coolly efficient assassin (Von Sydow) and receives a warning: Never trust a smiling face offering a ride. Based on the novel Six Days of the Condor by James Grady.

Max Von Sydow, who plays the efficient assassin in Three Days of the Condor, is one of the great actors of international cinema, renowned, in particular, for his films with Ingmar Bergman, including The Seventh Seal (1956) and Shame (1968).

The original source novel is called Six Days of the Condor. 2018 saw a revival of the premise with a 10 part series simply called Condor.

Academy Award Nominations: Best Film Editing.
