President Lyndon Johnson felt that Communism was the greatest global threat during his term in the Oval Office. This left the president with an agonizing decision when the conflict in Vietnam seemed unable to win. This TV-movie depicts Johnson's process and the influence by such figures as Defense Secretary Robert McNamara and special advisor Clark Clifford. Directed by veteran John Frankenheimer (THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE), a filmmaker very accustomed to the realm of politics. Michael Gambon (THE SINGING DETECTIVE) received a Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of Lyndon Johnson.
