Cliff Robertson also played the treacherous Deputy Director of the CIA, Higgins, in the ever intriguing Three Days of the Condor...

JFK asked him to play him..i believe he saw him in a commercial on telly that he liked, something like that, i'm sure he would then have seen his movies if he had not...anyway...he was a good actor and i thought imo he did a good job,in 109..must have been with some difficulty with the hero still alive, but jfks only complaint was his hair was parted o n the wrong side, no problem he changed it..... apparently the movie has not been available for some years but recently has been put on dvds...it was on telly here last evening.......thanks..
