"A totally fresh and bold experience.As loaded as a Hitchcock mystery film."-The New York Times

It happens with a startling swiftness and violence.An armed cadre seizes state control.Fortunately, a coup d' etat can't happen here.Or can it?

A classic of suspense directed by John Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate, Ronin) and written for the screen by Rod Sterling (The Twilight Zone), Seven Days In May tautly explores that possibility.At odds are a popular general and joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman (Burt Lancaster) and an unpopular President (Fredric March) with a pacifist agenda.At stake is the survival of the Republic.A vigilant colonel (Kirk Douglas) uncovers the scheme.But are the seven fateful days ahead enough time to derail a takeover?The clock is ticking.
