Movie Monday- Three Days of the Condor

It’s probably my favorite 1975 almost-spy-thriller. One of my favorite ’70s films. Complete with murder, CIA conspiracies, and unexpected romance. Oh, and did I mention the classy renditions of the 70s era spy-drum-music?

Supposedly, Faye Dunaway sort of fell in love with Robert Redford during the filming of this movie. But, really, do you blame her? During Three Days of the Condor, there are many opportunities when Bob flashes his perfectly sculpted jaw line while talking on a payphone. Oh, Bobby.

But besides having a perfect jawline, his character also likes photography and has a sensitive affection for the women he kidnaps. Need I say more?

    Excellent film! The 70s spawned some wonderful spy-thriller movies. Would also recommend the 1974 film ‘The Parallax View’ starring Warren Beatty. Its not as good as ‘Three Days of the Condor’ but still fun to watch. Another of my favorites has to be ‘The Conversation’, another 1974 film starring Gene Hackman. It can be slow moving for some, but I found it riveting.
