EXECUTIVE ACTION (1973)

Dunderheaded JFK conspiracy tale somehow caught the fancy of some of the best known progressive Hollywood liberals, including actors Burt Lancaster, Robert Ryan, Will Geer & scripter Dalton Trumbo. David Miller megs as if he’s making a Very Special episode of DRAGNET and uses documentary footage from ‘63 as if he were buying irregular job lots. (please see WINTER KILLS below which, to draw a far-fetched analogy, plays a sort of goofball DR. STRANGELOVE to this film's staid FAIL-SAFE)
