Rating: PG Year: 1973 Category: Thriller
Director: Fred Zinnerman Time: 142:00:00 min. Writer: Fredrick Forsyth & Kenneth Ross

Mine: Very well told tale. Edward Fox is chilling as the cold and calculating killer. This has a real international feel and appeal.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Exciting adaptation of Frederick Forsyth's best-seller about plot to assassinate De Gaulle and the painstaking preparations of the assassin. Beautifully filmed throughout Europe with a first-rate cast. Reworked in 1997 as THE JACKAL.
