When Pres. Lyman tells Gen. Scott "All you have to do is wait a year and nine months for something called an election", he has the time frame wrong. One year and nine months from May would be February. He should have said "Wait a year and six months", which would have placed it in November, the correct month of the next election. See more »

Classic scene between two brilliant actors does it all.
Somewhat forgotten political thriller about a military plot to take over the government. Great performances by all in this film, but mostly by Burt Lancaster and Fredric March who toward the end of the movie have a great scene with excellent dialog that sum up the true essence of the story. Ava Gardner is beautiful (literally) in this film. Edmund O'Brien is not to be overlooked as the bourbon loving southern senator. The first time I heard of this picture was when Gen Alexander Haig was being interviewed a number of years ago about the final days of the Nixon administration and was asked if he was thinking about the movie "Seven Days in May" Eventually I saw it late one night on cable and was glad I did.
