Rating: 4/5 -- Corajoso para sua época, traz um roteiro incomodamente plausível (e extremamente bem pesquisado) de Dalton Trumbo e uma montagem didática e tensa.

Product Description:

The subject of a secret conspiracy to assassinate JFK is the theme of this drama. This was Robert Ryan's last film.

Plot Synopsis:

A group of men from the government, military, and industry conspire to assassinate President John F. Kennedy, out of concern that JFK might pull US forces out of Vietnam.

Production Notes:

  • "Executive Action" story writer Mark Lane previously produced the Emile de Antonio documentary "Rush to Judgment" (1967). Both the film and the Mark Lane book it was based on refuted the Warren Commission's report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and advanced Lane's own conspiracy theory. Lane posited that had Kennedy won the 1964 election, he would have ended all US involvement in the Vietnam conflict. Right-wing forces, fearing this, felt an assassination was necessary to protect US interests.
  • The 1973 film preceded "JFK" in mixing black & white documentary footage with staged fictional color film, shot on location. This low-budget film was released around the tenth anniversary of the November 22, 1963 assassination.
  • Film was actor Robert Ryan's last project before his death.
  • Producer Edward Lewis later went on to help Costa-Gavras get financing for the political-conspiracy-thriller "Missing".
