Condor is the codename of Robert Redford who works as a researcher in a CIA department. After having found all the members of his group murdered, he contacts the CIA headquarters for help. It appears that there is a secret faction inside the Organisation that has been disturbed by a report written by Redford. Hunted by Max Von Sydow, a free-lance hitman, Condor becomes suspicious and doesn't trust his employer anymore. He kidnaps Faye Dunaway in order to have a quiet home for a few days and time to think about the situation.

Still at the top after 27 years.
