SEVEN DAYS IN MAY

Part of Weekend Classics: Politics in B&W.

In the height of the Cold War, military aide Martin Casey (Kirk Douglas) stumbles across a plot by his general (Burt Lancaster) to overthrow the U.S. president (Fredric March), who has just negotiated a controversial peace treaty. With Congress in recess and the vice president out of the country, Casey must decide whether to follow orders or save democracy. John Frankenheimer’s gripping followup to THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE boasts top-notch photography and design, a screenplay by Rod Serling, and a stellar cast (also starring Ava Gardner and Hugh Marlowe).

“A combination of competents has drawn from the novel of the same title a strikingly dramatic, realistic and provocatively topical film… The performances are excellent down the line, under the taut and penetrating directorial guidance of John Frankenheimer. Kirk Douglas is masterfully cool and matter of fact.” —Variety Staff (Dec 31, 1963)
