When the Condor is in Kathy's apartment, they watch a news
report about the shooting in the alley. The reporter has a channel 7 microphone and identifies himself as being with Eyewitness News, the name of WABC-TV's news broadcast for decades. When the report is over, we see the logo for channel 9 instead of channel 7. 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.
You miss that kind of action, sir?

The Three Days of Condor was a very entertaining movie. Robert Redford has a way of drawing in the audience. he performs the role very well in this film. I love the lack of special effects because it makes the movie rely on plot and acting. This is a quality movie, unlike a lot of new action and spy films that substitute good acting directing and plot for big sets, budgets and special effects. The government corruption theme is very well scripted. The way the story unfolds is complex and interesting.
Overall the movie is a little less Hollywood and a little more real life. At times it reminds you of The Day Of The Jackel. A little slower and calmer but all the sweeter.
