Executive Action


executiveactionA group of powerful men gather to discuss the implementation of a secret plan ā€“ to assassinate President John F. Kennedy on a visit to Dallas in November, 1963.Ā This thriller came on the ten-year anniversary of the murder and claimed to introduce a chain of events that might have lead up to it. Unfortunately, writer Dalton Trumbo has become so fascinated with the technical aspects of the conspiracy that heā€™s forgotten to write characters that live and breathe. All weā€™re left with is a dull drama where men stand around talking about what they plan to do.

1973-U.S. 91 min. Color. Directed byĀ David Miller. Screenplay: Dalton Trumbo. Cast: Burt Lancaster (James Farrington), Robert Ryan (Foster), Will Geer (Harold Ferguson), Gilbert Green, John Anderson, Ed Lauter.
