Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
After his 1962 breakthrough with the political thriller The Manchurian Candidate, director John Frankenheimer cemented his reputation as a paranoia filmmaker with Seven Days in May. Though the assassination of John F. Kennedy happened around the time of the film's release, Seven Days remained ahead of its time, as the conspiracy-film genre wouldn't fully flourish until the 1970s. The determinedly realistic screenplay was written by Rod Serling, who was also responsible for the television series The Twilight Zone, as well as the scripts for Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962) and Planet of the Apes (1968). Burt Lancaster made five films with Frankenheimer in the 1960s, and Seven Days added to his string of hits.

    Classic Political Thriller of the First Order

    'SEVEN DAYS IN MAY' is a classic political thriller of the first order with a powerhouse cast of Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Frederic March, Ava Gardner, Edmond O'Brien, and Martin Balsam. At the height of the Cold War and with tensions with the Soviet Union at the razors edge, an unpopular American President is challenged by a traitorous military plot conceived by an Air Force four-star general to overthrow the federal government. Explosive. Outstanding. Don't miss it.
