When Joe is in the sporting goods store and about to kidnap Kathy, he's peering out from a rack of parkas. The hangers are alternated in/out/in. Any fan of "Dragnet" knows this is a method of anti-theft; it prevents someone from grabbing several parkas at once and making off with them. See more »

This film was very effective in maintaining the tension not only of the Condor's life and death mission to discover the reasons for the massacre of his colleagues but also the relationship between him and Kathy. The cast is uniformly good though Redford obviously carries the film. Von Sydow is again great as the strictly professional assassin. The entire film had an aura of authenticity that had me entirely engrossed. Recommended, 8/10.
