In Three Days of the Condor, there's a scene where Robert Redford's character calls someone on the phone and requests a "CNA". Does anyone know what CNA stands for in this context?

    WOMAN'S VOICE
    (FILTER)
    CNA, Mrs. Coleman speaking.
    TURNER
    (into test-set)
    This is Harold Thomas, Mrs. Coleman,
    Customer Service.  CNA on 202 555-7389,
    please.
    WOMAN'S VOICE
    (FILTER)
    One moment, please.

Relevant extract of the script:

Customer service, requesting a CNA...
on 202-227-0098.
One moment, please.
That would be a Mr. Leonard Atwood.
365 Mackenzie Place.
Chevy Chase, Maryland.

It seems fairly apparent that this stands for

Customer Name and Address

Since that's the context of the scene.

  • Makes sense. Thanks! – Wyvern Jan 3 at 7:04
