Directed by John Frankenheimer
Burt Lancaster plays General James M. Scott, who, convinced that liberal President Jordan Lyman is soft on America's enemies, plots a military takeover of the United States. Every effort made by President Lyman to find concrete evidence of General Scott's scheme is scuttled by political protocol, human error and accidental death. Ultimately, Lyman must rely upon the man who first uncovered the plot: Colonel "Jiggs" Casey (Kirk Douglas). (Available on FilmStruck)
