PRIMARY reveals JFK’s star power and the intensity of the 1960
presidential race. John Frankenheimer’s SEVEN DAYS IN MAY, with
a Rod Serling screenplay, unfolds a tale of an American coup in
hyperrealistic style, anchored by Burt Lancaster’s bravura
performance. Sam Peckinpah’s MAJOR DUNDEE stars Charlton Heston
