The Day of the Jackal
This stylish 1973 Anglo-European thriller stars Edward Fox as a professional assassin who agrees to take one last job killing Charles De Gaulle. But when the French government uncovers the plot, a cat-and-mouse manhunt pits The Jackal against the best detective in France. The nail-biting suspense is often imitated, impossible to duplicate. Good transfer from a very good source print, Dolby 1.0, trailer.
