David Callan, top agent/assassin for the S.I.S., was forced to retired because he had lost his nerve. Now, Callan is called back into service to handle the assassination of Schneider, a German businessman. His former boss promises Callan that he'll be returned to active status if he follows orders, but as always Callan refuses to act until he knows why Schneider has been marked for death. This film is a remake of the same story presented in "A Magnum for Schneider." Written by

Did You Know?
The film was adapted from series creator James Mitchell
's 1969 novel "Red File for Callan" (aka "A Magnum for Schneider" and "Callan", the latter title being the reprinted tie-in to this film), an expansion of his 1967 teleplay Armchair Theatre: A Magnum for Schneider
(1967). Events such as the training sequences, Range Rover road scare and "the Greek"'s subplot did not feature in the original drama. See more
When Callan is trying to slip Hunter's surveillance team he stops to 'give directions' to an old lady in an alleyway. As he do so, a member of the public (an older man with glasses) attempts to walk down the steps towards them but is pulled back out of shot, presumably by a member of the crew. See more
What about Meres?
I believe he is unconscious, though with Meres it is difficult to tell.
