The man whose car Harry hijacks at the end of the film (in order to pursue Downes) remains unnamed in the film and the viewer never finds out his profession, but in the novel he was a plastic sales representative. Thus, the credit for "sales representative" in the cast refers to him. See more »
A British agent tries to infiltrate the IRA to find an assassin and capture him before he himself is found out. I keep trying to get people to watch this film. This is the best treatment I have seen about the Troubles in Northern Ireland, the causes and the futility. Both the British and the IRA are intelligent, and we see the reasons each side does what it does. The tension is very well handled. The film PATRIOT GAMES pays tribute by borrowing some of the music, but it does not match the quality of the storytelling.
