First of two espionage films in six years with the word "Condor" in the title. The second was the spy spoof Condorman (1981) made and released in 1981. In that movie, when Woody (Michael Crawford) is glamorizing Harry's job at the CIA, Harry responds, "Not everyone in the CIA is Robert Redford." This is a subtle joke regarding Three Days of the Condor (1975) in which Redford plays a CIA agent whose codename is Condor. See more »

[Wabash talks about his entry into the US intelligence field]
I go even further back than that. Ten years after The Great War, as we used to call it. Before we knew enough to number them.

This is one of Senor Sock's favorite movies ever. A taunt suspense thriller starring Robert Redford as a low level CIA agent. He works as a reader of foreign novels and publications when suddenly his world is turned upside down and he is embroiled in a web of suspense and intrigue.
Excellent direction and a great script. Faye Dunaway has never looked better!
