Overview

"His code name is Condor. In the next 24 hours, everyone he trusts will try to kill him." As the ads ominously announced, a low-level spook confronts the unfathomable in Sydney Pollack's 1975 political thriller, adapted from the James Grady novel Six Days of the Condor. CIA researcher Joe Turner Robert Redford returns from lunch to find the entire staff of his small New York office assassinated. When he meets his boss Cliff Robertson at another location to tell him what happened, someone tries to shoot Turner as well. On the run from the cops and his agency, a desperate Turner resorts to holing up with innocent civilian Kathy Faye Dunaway, who becomes his only ally. Joe decides to save himself the only way possible -- by going to The New York Times. But will it work? One of a cycle of conspiracy films from the 1970s that also included The Parallax View 1974 and Redford's All the President's Men 1976, Three Days of the Condor pits a working everyman albeit a CIA everyman against a far-reaching conspiracy, as it also criticizes the CIA during a period of increasing publicity about federal wrongdoing, from the Pentagon Papers through Watergate and other congressional investigations. The challenge of negotiating New York City, shot on location, becomes one more sign of the forces that Joe must face. With its timely subject matter, taut suspense, and sympathetic Redford hero, Three Days of the Condor became a substantial hit. Balancing the conspiracy cycle's pessimism with a margin of attenuated hope, Three Days of the Condor suggests that one man can still discover the truth, but whether it helps him remains to be seen.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
One of the most memorable paranoid thrillers of the 1970s, Sydney Pollack's Three Days of the Condor never loses its focus as a tense, compelling exercise in suspense. The plot rests on the premise that everyone with power is corrupt; Pollack and writers Lorenzo Semple, Jr. and David Rayfiel keep the proceedings from devolving into the preposterous or unconvincing. True to form, Robert Redford represents the powerless, non-corrupt masses as the film's bookish CIA researcher Turner. Unlike some of the bleaker examples of the genre (1974's The Parallax View), Redford's character ultimately outwits the system and finds a way to fight the corruption, much as he would the following year in All the President's Men. Redford's charisma smoothes over some of Condor's less-believable moments, and Sydney Pollack directs in the distinctively gloomy but lively style common to 1970s films. This was the fourth film on which the director and star teamed up; they would continue to work together on movies such as 1985's Out of Africa and 1990's Havana.

    THE QUINTESSENTIAL THRILLER!

    The Quintessential Thriller! A formidable cast of Robert Redford, Faye Dunaway, Max von Sydow, and Cliff Robertson put together a nail-biter of a suspense thriller. Sydow is unforgettable as the icy cold and unshakable professional assassin who stalks Redford every minute of the film right to the end. If you thought the nation is concerned about the supply of Middle Eastern Oil today, then you will enjoy with goosepimples the plot that Redford unwittingly stumbles upon, a plan to seize oil fields after multiple crises in the 1970s. From that moment on, Redford wears a bullseye on his chest unless he as the prey can outwit the predators who would kill him. Awesome flick.

    The Soundtrack? What?...

    This movie has got to be one of the all time greats. I think right up there with Casablanca, different kind of movie but greatness. However, the movie promoters sent premire tickets to our radio station that year and Columbus Ohio and radio station WVKO went to see this movie. I t was absolutely great. But as we (disc jockeys) news people and others were watching the movie, I turned to KC Jones and said '' are you getting this soundtrack, its was great also, thats when we learned about Dave Grusin. I have owned this album 3 times and now I can not find the CD. Help!!!

    Great Movie!

    Faye Dunaway and Robert Redford did a great acting job. They made you believe that they were like the characters they played. The movie took you back to the good old days when the world was a better place. I highly recommend this movie.

    Everyman Fighting for His America

    America has been called the Vineyard of Liberty. Like everything that is alive it needs tending. The hero in this story is doing his part to see that the Vineyard keeps its liberties intact.
    My favorite movie line comes from this film. "I don't think so."
    Redford and Dunaway are wonderful.
