He notes the attack would have been fatal had it not been for the flimsyness of the sword he was carrying.]]

* ''Film/ThreeDaysOfTheCondor'' opens with a CIA station being wiped out by three assassins. As the station is protected by CCTV cameras, locked doors and a guard even the receptionist has a gun in the drawer -- the killers get inside by sending in a man dressed as a postman. The place gets regular deliveries of books so this doesn't seem strange. [[spoiler:The postman killer tries the same trick on the protagonist later on, but this time he's ready.]] Later in the film the bad guys try this ruse again with the protagonist.
