The French Conspiracy 1972
Directed by Yves Boisset in 1972, The French Conspiracy (also known as The Assassination or L'attentat in its native France), is a French-Italian co-production loosely based on the real life Mehdi Ben Barka affair, where the prominent Moroccan politician was kidnapped and murdered in Paris in 1965. The screenplay was adapted by Jorge Semprun based on a story by Ben Barzman and Basilio Franchina. With music by the great Ennio Morricone.

Discovering that exiled Algerian OAS terrorist Sadiel (Gian Maria Volonte) is about to return to France, both the CIA and the French Secret Service go on red alert. They blackmail a journalist, Francois Darien (Jean-Louis Trintignant), into helping them to entice Sadiel to Paris, in order to assassinate him. Meanwhile Michael Howard (Roy Scheider) discovers the double-cross, only to be warned off by the CIA, who are quite happy to have the French dig their own political grave. A taut, gripping drama unfolds, as two secret service agencies fight for superiority on the streets of Paris.
