Edward Fox at his best
He doesn't say much - he just dresses up and pretends to be different people in order to make his way towards killing Charles de Gaulle, killing anyone who might know too much en route. Fox is excellent as the amoral and perhaps sociopathic Jackal, whilst Alan Badel and Michael Lonsdale (better known as Drax, in Moonraker) add able support, whilst other notable British acting stalwarts of the time play the upper-class bit-parts that the story affords them.

very good film
in the remake with willis, they should have cast him as degaule, and changed the ending so that the assasin did not miss.

Puts a lot of modern 'action thrillers' in their place. DO NOT confuse with the absurd Bruce Willis rehash.

British Classic
A British classic, old fashioned, yes... pertinent still, yes. A great book, simply adapted to the big screen to modest success.

A group of conspirators contracts the Jackal, a professional hitman, to assassinate President Charles de Gaulle of France. The killer starts to put his painstaking plans into action, creating a new identity, establishing his alibi and commissioning a custom-made weapon, while out-foxing the French police at every turn. Fred Zinnemann's adaptation of Frederick's Forsyth thriller, with Edward Fox, Michael Lonsdale, Alan Badel, Tony Britton and Cyril Cusack
