The novel and the movie Seven Days in May were based on a verypotential reality. See James Bamford's 2002 book, Body of Secrets,which is about the National Security Agency. General Edwin Walker,mentioned in another review, was only the least of what was going on inthe higher echelons of the U.S. military near the end of the EisenhowerAdministration and the beginning of the Kennedy-Johnson Administration.<br><br>At military bases, and even at the National War College in Washington,the most rabid preachings took place about the real threat of communismcoming not from Russia or Cuba, but from high-ups in the domestic powerstructure, including the government. The entire Joint Chiefs of Staff(JCS), led by Chairman Lyman Lemnitzer, was very right wing and rabidlyobsessed with the idea that American civilization could not endureunless Cuba was militarily conquered and occupied in the long-term.They repeatedly threw suggestions for this at Eisenhower, who nevertook the bit. When Ike left the Oval Office and Kennedy, who had neverbeen a military higher-up, replaced him, Lemnitzer felt adrift andbecame very paranoid. There were all sorts of JCS contingency plans,never implemented, for creating an incident that could be blamedfalsely on the Russians and/or the Cubans to justify an invasion - asort of second sinking of the battleship Maine. The more far-fetched ofthese ideas included terrorism at home to be blamed on Cuba and anattack on a friendly Central American country that could be falselyblamed on Cuba, all without the President's approval. Lemnitzer,according to Bamford, had little use for the concept of civiliancontrol of the military. In fact,enough of this atmosphere within theU.S. military was in the wind that there was a secret Congressionalinquiry into the potential for a military takeover of the government,which was based on more than idle wonder. Senator Albert Gore ofTennessee (the father of the recent Vice President), a member of theinvestigating committee, called for Lemnitzer's firing. Kennedy did notfire him, but did not re-appoint him to a second term as Chairman,preferring the more rational Maxwell Taylor.<br><br>When the book came out, I stayed awake for 24 hours to finish it. Icould not put it down. Mercifully, the film is shorter, but it issuperbly acted and very well scripted. You won't be disappointed.

John Frankenheimer directs this powerful political thriller about aconspiracy by top military brass to overthrow the government. A marvelouscast in a powerful, pulse pounding drama. Kirk Douglas is a Marine Colonelthat suspects the Joint Chief of Staff Chairman(Burt Lancaster)of plotting adisguised military coup that would destroy the President's nucleardisarmament treaty. Veteran actor Fredric March is outstanding as thePresident.<br><br>The very talented supporting cast includes: the beautiful Ava Gardner,Martin Balsam, Andrew Duggan and Edmond O'Brien. John Houseman makes hisdebut in this Rod Serling screenplay. This one is a heavyweight. Paranoiaprevails. The Russians are always suspect; but who would think of your ownmilitary turning inside out?

Seven Days in May is cold war movie making at its best. This film does nothave a car chase, gun battles, or a President as villian. It does have greatactors and is one of the finest translattion of a novel toscreen.It is the first of the U.S. Militery as villian plot lines, since over usedon both the screen and tv. A number of years ago a remake was done for cable-The Enemy within-and itdid not work. In that the President is to be over-throw because he will signa defense bill! The Russians are no longer the enemy and that's why itfails. In the first, made three years after the Cuban Missle Crisis, thefear of the Soviets is real and provides the ploters with a major causeagainst the President's program of disarmement.One of the best movies of the last fifty years.
