One of the non-Hitchcock pieces in the Late Hitchcock, Fake Hitchcock showcase at ImaginOn, 1975's Three Days of the Condor is also the best of all seven movies being presented in the film series. And, yes, that includes the three Hitchcock titles included in the lineup.

A superb "paranoia thriller" in a decade that was full of 'em (other sterling examples include the fictional The Parallax View and the factual All the President's Men), this intelligent yarn, directed by the late Sydney Pollack, stars Robert Redford as a low-level CIA reader who finds himself on the run after his co-workers are all assassinated. Faye Dunaway is fine as the innocent civilian pressed into helping him out, and there are further notable contributions by Cliff Robertson, John Houseman and, as a smooth hitman, Max von Sydow.

Three Days of the Condor will be shown at 6:45 p.m. tonight (Monday, Feb. 8) in the Wachovia Playhouse at ImaginOn. Admission is free.
