The movie was just shown again on the History Channel in the States. What a great picture. So many great performances. One of the best is the understated acting of Martin Balsam as hostage Daniel Cooper. Balsam was in so many movies before and since but in this picture, the camera has many close-ups of Balsam in several scenes with the terrorists where he expresses himself more with his eyes and less with his lines. His scene with Buchholtz behind the counter as the Israeli operators burst in and the terrorist begins to pull out his hand grenades...the eye contact...the moment of truth...an unforgetable scene.
He's great in so many other pictures. Here's a few he appears in:
"Seven Days in May"
"The Bedford Incident"
"Little Big Man"
