Three Days of Condor

"Three Days of the Condor" Many great political thrillers emerged during the 1970s, including "The Parallax View," "All the President's Men" and this crackling 1975 entry from Pollack. Redford -- who else? -- plays a bespectacled reader for a CIA front who is forced to flee his office after all of his colleagues are mysteriously murdered when he was out to lunch. Faye Dunaway works well with Redford as a young woman he kidnaps in order to use her apartment as a hide-out. Of course, she ends up helping him and in between being pursued by the bad guys they manage a roll in the hay. Max Von Sydow, Cliff Robertson and John Houseman also star.
