Hit-man Clint Harris has one more job to do before he can retire. The corporation which hires him demands that Harris "erase" an ex-employee who has become a snitch for the police. At first Harris refuses, but in the service of hired-killer-cinema tradition, his own brother is assassinated, so that he must accept. The pro is assigned an assistant, Tony Lo Bello, whom he teaches the ropes as they pursue their prey through Paris. The plot thickens when a beautiful woman identifies the target, but it turns out he has killed the wrong man! Corpses pile up as Harris wonders whom he can really trust. Written by

That was the title when I saw it a long, long, time ago, and I would still rate it one of the best "assassin/assassination" flicks, before "The Day of The Jackal" (1973), etc.
I can hardly remember the details, and hope to see it again, soon, to validate the reason why it has stuck in my mind for so long. Robert Webber was very effective in the role, and the detailed treatment of the "sniper" action made the movie. Many aspects of the film have become recurring themes in a whole lot of movies that came after.
For the time being, I gave it 7 out of 10, until I can have a chance to view it again.
