C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater: Seven Days In May

Tonight we present a taut classic written by Rod Serling. (open thread)

When General James Mattoon Scott becomes convinced that liberal President Jordan Lyman is rolling over for America's enemies, he sets in motion a military coup to take over the United States government.

Directed by John Frankenheimer and written by Rod Serling. The jaw-jutting, scenery-chomping competition between Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas alone is worth the price of admission.
