SEVEN DAYS IN MAY (1964): In this tense Cold War thriller, the President of the United States (Fredric March) is targeted by a powerful Air Force general (Burt Lancaster) after signing a controversial nuclear disarmament treaty with the Soviet Union. With a covert military coup imminent, only the suspicions of a lone colonel (Kirk Douglas) stand in the way of the catastrophic overthrow of the U.S. government.
'Let Us Continue' (1964): The United States Information Agency commissioned this short, produced by Hearst Metrotone, in the wake of the Kennedy assassination in order to introduce allies to Lyndon B. Johnson’s positions on major issues. Controversy surrounded the production when it was leaked that the agency requested the deletion of the image of a rabbi in the film in order to avoid possible objections from Arab countries.
