The only ever film appearance (and uncredited) of John Warner. Warner was married to actress Elizabeth Taylor (who also appears in the film) at the time the movie was made. Warner was a government official who had served as Under secretary and then Secretary of the U.S. Navy during the Nixon Administration, 1972-1974, before he was appointed in 1974 to head up the federal government's American Revolution Bicentennial Administration. As such, his casting in this film provided a real life political nexus to the real life American politics that the film referenced. See more »

"Winter Kills" is a kind of a movie that works on several levels and does a good job in each and every one of them. It mixes black comedy, with political satire, mystery and conspiracy to create a dazzling mix up of possible assassination scenarios that anybody who tried to untangle it, ultimately gave up. Black comedy part show the ridicule of the system in which the quest for more power and money eats it's own children, and everything is crazy on purpose. Houston is great as Bridges' kingpin father and Perkins is a fabulous casting choice as the central figure that shows lunacy of the world of surveillance on everybody and everything.
"Winter Kills" can only appear silly to those who find air-tight logic in the Warren Commission, "lone gunmen" and "magic bullet" theories. Others who don't find those stories plausible or even sane, can find something for themselves in the movies such as "JFK", "Executive action" and "Winter kills", which shows the same topic in a different light. Worth seeing and even keeping.
