Quotes

Gen. Hempstead: Davis was an Army man. As such he belongs to me, and I demand...!
Gen. Wendell Bruce: YOU DEMAND? Well, let me remind you that the Internal Security Forces SUPERSEDE the Army! Why, I could have your resignation so fast you'd wonder what fell on you. 'You demand'!
Gen. Hempstead: I apologize for what was perhaps a bad choice of phrase. But I *request* some explanation!

Excellent TV movie
22 December 2003 | by (Chicago, IL USA) – See all my reviews

This is a 1968 made for TV movie which was aired only a few times. It is an excellent science fiction- future history movie with the premise that America has descended into a dictatorship because Americans have voluntarily given up their freeedoms in the face of an outside threat. Now that threat has been eliminated, the people in power seek to keep their power... They are opposed by a secret underground called The Sons of Liberty.

I wish this was available to buy in DVD!
