Storyline

A movie about the sudden disappearance of a top Presidential adviser. Grilled by the media, the President's press secretary reveals very little, simply because he knows very little. But the chief executive himself has more information than he's willing to make public; the FBI has proof that the vanished adviser was homosexual, and subject to blackmail. Written by Ørnås

Surprisingly Strong Made-For-TV Thriller
5 June 2003 | by (Honolulu, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

Similar to the timeless and powerful Kirk Douglas/Burt Lancaster classic "Seven Days In May". This surprisingly good political thriller was filmed during the height of the Watergate scandal. And although there was some relevance to events at the time, the Vanished storyline does not deal with the trials of 'Tricky Dick'. What it does do, and do well, is take the viewers along a very slippery political path laced with many red herrings. There's some ingenious scripting I suspect will trip up even the most jaded viewers: Threats of war with the Chinese communists, treason at the highest level - and considering this was made in 1971 - scandalous suggestions of homosexual liaisons affecting the national security of the United States. It's a strong 'all star cast' with good performances all around. Particularly in light of the fact that this was a made-for-TV production.

Robert Young, of Marcus Welby MD fame, really steals the show as the manipulative congressman from the south. His performance as Senator Gannon, perhaps unintentionally, is a dead-on-ringer for a "mean" Mark Twain, his evil twin brother perhaps. Rivaling that of Hal Holbrook's recent one man performance and Jerry Hardin's much beloved turn at the author during the Star Trek next generation TV series.

If you know of anyone who might have a copy of this movie - I would certainly like to talk with that person. :-)
