THE CONVERSATION (Gene Hackman, Harrison Ford, Frederic Forrest, Cindy Williams; directed by Francis Ford Coppola)

Review: “Harry Caul is a microcosm of America at that time: not a bad man, trying to do his job, haunted by a guilty conscience, feeling tarnished by his work. The movie works on that moral level, and also as a taut, intelligent thriller.” —Roger Ebert

Recognition: Oscar nominations for Picture, Sound, Screenwriting

Quote: “He’d kill us if he got the chance.” —Mark (Frederic Forrest)

Trivia: premiered on Coppola’s birthday
