Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Plot to Kill Roosevelt was released in the US under the less inflammatory title Conspiracy in Teheran. The fact-based storyline takes place during the Teheran Conference in the waning days of WW2. As Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin try to agree on the world's course after the end of the war, British news correspondent Pemberton Grant (Derek Farr) gets wind of a plot to assassinate the American president. The villains are representatives of an international armaments cartel, who can't afford to have peace declared. Racing against time, Grant endeavors to prevent the assassins from dynamiting Roosevelt's car. Even though the audience knows the outcome, there's thrills aplenty in The Plot to Kill Roosevelt.
