* GuileHero: It's repeatedly stated that Turner is not a field agent, but as the bad guys realize, that actually makes things trickier because he doesn't do what a field agent would do. His unpredictability, breadth of knowledge, and creative thinking allow him to stay ahead of them.

Mild-mannered researcher Joe Turner (Redford) works for [[{{CIA}} Central Intelligence Agency]] in a small building in New York, reading book after book to review their plots to see if they either contain elements that may be similar to ongoing covert operations or else be useful ideas for the CIA to employ. One day during the holiday season Turner steps out of the office to grab his co-workers lunch at a nearby deli... during which a hit squad led by Joubert (von Sydow) enters the office and kills Turner's co-workers (and love interest Janice). Terrified, Turner calls in the deaths to his CIA handlers, who prompt him for his code name 'Condor' and order him to follow procedures for pick-up and debriefing. In the process, things keep getting messier and Turner begins to worry that his own employer the CIA is trying to murder him.

* AffablyEvil: Joubert. He comes to respect Turner after his various escape attempts. [[spoiler: And after killing Atwood instead of Turner, Joubert offers Turner friendly advice, a ride to the train station... and even a gun. He seems ''relieved'' to no long need to kill him, in fact.]]

* UsefulNotes/ColdWar: Higgins justifies what happens because "The [[DirtyCommunists other side]] plays games too."



* FilmOfTheBook: Came out 1974 written by James Grady called Six Days of the Condor. The names of the characters were different, it had another reason for killing the readers (some higher ups in the CIA used the book shipments to smuggle drugs), had another faction (Oversight, which polices all intelligence agencies and reports only to the Senate) and killed [[spoiler:Kathy on the last pages]].
** Actually, [[spoiler: Kathy (called Wendy in the book) was thought to be dead, but survived, though barely.]]
