"Oil fields. This whole damn thing was about oil. Wasn't it? "
Three Days of the Condor, made in 1975 but just as timely now.

Looks like I'm making a DVD purchase soon.

1. Was and is about oil.
Need to get a puppet government in place then line up those oil contracts.

2. Last few lines are the most memorable.
It comes when you already know that Redford gave the information to the press, and the assassin tells him, "How do you know they're going to print it?" Those of us who lived in the days of "All the President's Men" naively believed that we were safe because the press would ALWAYS tell us the truth. So the meaning of the last line of Condor was overlooked by many of us, until it was too late.
