The Day of the Jackal

The Jackal (Edward Fox) gets a clear shot at De Gaulle's (Adrien Cayla-Legrand's) head during Liberation Day ceremonies, but De Gaulle bows just as the Jackal pulls the trigger, causing him to miss. As the Jackal reloads for a second shot, Detective Lebel (Michael Lonsdale) and another police officer burst into the room. The Jackal shoots the officer, but is shot and killed by Lebel. The police are unable to learn the true identity of the Jackal, and he is buried as much of an enigma as he was when he was alive.
Thanks, Matt!
