An amazingly still powerful thriller about an attempted government takeover by a band of traitorous generals and their politician pals. Lead by tough Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Burt Lancaster, the cast also includes Kirk Douglas, as the good guy colonel, Fredric March as the threatened president, as well as Edmund O’Brien as a senator and Ava Gardner as Lancaster’s mistress. The script is by Rod (Twilight Zone) Serling, the direction by John (The Manchurian Candidate) Frankenheimer.
