MCW: Political Thriller
"I don't interest myself in why..."
From Sydney Pollack in 1975, THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR
Robert Redford, Faye Dunaway, Cliff Robertson--a very young Redford, a very young Dunaway star in a early suspicion that "The Company" eats its own.
Redford had the introvert's dream job, complete wif' rimless hippie spectacles, of jes' sittin' in a nice Georgetown house readin' newspapers and articles ...jes' a nice non-violent dreamer's job of lookin' fer patterns. He's low man on the totem pole, an' sent off to fetch lunch fer the office--only to return an' find the Valentine Massacre came a'callin'. Ever'body daid, 'cept our boy. An he knows that they know he ain't daid--an the fun begins. What wuz it all about? Well, it's still about the same thang--take a look.
