We wrap up a month of requests… and the year 2023… with a look at Fred Zinnemann’s The Day of the Jackal. Based on the book by Frederick Forsyth, the film stars Edward Fox as the titular Jackal, an assassin as cool as a cucumber in a bowl of hot sauce. He’s hired by members of the OAS, a holdout group of paramilitary terrorist organization who were holdouts who tried to keep Algeria a French colony. They hire The Jackal to assassinate president Charles de Gaulle in August, 1962.

Ian Brownell and Rich Edwards join Mike to discuss Zinneman''s film and the 1997 remake with Bruce Willis and Richard Gere, The Jackal.
