Early in the film some packages are delivered to the office in
which Redford works. The security guard counts 5 of them, and says "Roger, fiver." The NATO phonetic alphabet uses "niner" for 9 in order to differentiate the sound from "fife" for 5. No retired military man, as the guard is supposed to be, should say "fiver." See more »

Loved this film. One of the best from the golden age of cinema (1970's). Robert Reford was as his peak. Faye Dunaway's best role since Thomas Crown Affair. Not to be missed for those fans of 70's cinema... Really touches on Big Brother and the threat that a secret government entity lived and breathed within the CIA. Robert Reford's character embodied the unsuspecting paranoia that characterized that time. A very non-Hollywood ending will surprise you. The cinematography was top-noch (Owen Roizman). Nothing has come close to this film. This film has intrigue, suspense, and above all a moral conscience. It presents the idea that what does our government do, and at what cost?
