The day of The Jackal (1973) is a thriller based on the novel by Frederick Forsyth, directed by Fred Zinnemann and starring Edward Fox.

The film is about a professional assassin known as “The Jackal” who is hired to assassinate French president Charles De Gaulle in the summer of 1963.

I think Edward Fox is perfect as the murderer. The English actor did an excellent job. He’s got the magnetism needed to give credibility to a character characterized by the coldness.

And it’s fascinating to see the meticulous work of this mysterious murderer to prepare the assassination.

Truly it’s’s one of those movies that you never seem to get bored watching.
