THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR!

THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR!

BEFORE IT BECAME A CLASSIC SPY FILM, THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR WAS ORIGINALLY SIX DAYS OF THE CONDOR WHEN IT WAS A NOVEL BY JAMES GRADY.

NOW, THE LONE IGUANA BLOG GIVES US 28 TIPS AND TRICKS FROM THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR, A SPY COURSE BRIEFING . . .


Three Days Of The Condor is a outstanding spy film, filled with tricks galore. The best part? The star, Joe Turner (played by Robert Redford) is not spy or field agent, but simply a reader of everything to do with spying. In fact, most of the tricks he uses come from comics or other books.

1. Turner is known for being late, and taking shortcuts. In the beginning, he takes secret, unofficial exit to save time, and unbeknownst to him, it saves his life. Take shortcuts, make your paths and whereabouts unknown.

2. After discovering his co-workers massacred, he grabs a gun from desk of co-worker for protection. Make sure you have the tools you need to protect yourself.

3. Leaving the scene of a crime in which he was most likely supposed to be murdered, he leaves his bike to avoid suspicion that he is actually alive. Notice that he leaves immediately, rather than staying there and possibly running into the murderers. Scenes of crimes are usually not safe. Get out.

4. Now suspicious, Turner returns to a familiar apartment, a poor choice, and discovers men coming up the stairs. In order to avoid being seen, he travels further up the stairs, rather than go down, out the window or another apartment. Avoid the unknown as much as possible until safety is assured.
