Synopsis by Hal Erickson
To Kill the King is an obscure mid-1970s political intrigue film. It's so obscure, in fact, that if it hadn't been listed in TV Guide, it might have been written off as a fabrication. Filmed shortly after the Watergate debacle, the story contains several far-from-veiled references to that political disaster. An assassination in the higher echelons of government trickles down to the private sector, sparking plots and conspiracies that would shame the Borgias. For such a little-known film, To Kill the King boasts an impressive cast, including Patrick O'Neal, Susan Tyrrell and Barry Morse.
