George C. Scott,
The title of this film is a reference to the book "The Guns of August," which had greatly impressed President Kennedy and from which he drew inspiration in dealing with the Cuban Missile Crisis. See more »
The Army General Maxwell Taylor was shown in several scenes, but most prominently around the Cabinet table in the oval office with the right epaulet end showing from under his collar. Military uniforms are purposefully made with adequate tab length to conceal it under the collar, so that members must be "in uniform" at all times. No member of such high rank would miss checking this action, to be certain of this placement before a mirror, prior to appearing at such important meetings. See more »
Riveting behind the scenes drama about the Cuban missile crisis.
A must-see depiction of the Cuban missile crisis of 1962. Focusing mostly on the Kennedy administration, this made-for-TV movie captures all the tension and emotion occurring inside the White House. It gives a real insider's view of how the American government operates. It also takes you inside the Kremlin giving you a glimpse how both sides dealt with the crisis. William Devane and Martin Sheen give excellent performances as Jack and Bobby Kennedy. The entire cast is top-notch. Don't bother with Thirteen Days, it pales by comparison. This is the real deal.
