The all-purpose title Assassin was trotted out for this 1973 thriller. Ian Hendry stars as an M15 agent, licensed to kill in the name of the Crown. His assignment: seek out and liquidate an elusive enemy agent. Hendry's target is one of several people working in the British Air Ministry. Hint: Edward Judd looms large (as he always did) in the supporting cast. Assassin was released minus a producer credit, so if you don't like it, we haven't the slightest idea whom you can blame.
