LOCAL HERO (1983) Burt Lancaster and Peter Riegert star in the wonderfully whimsical comedy of an oil company’s planned buyout of a Scottish seaport. “Genuine fairy tales are rare; so is filmmaking that is thoroughly original in an unobtrusive way. Local Hero is both” (Vincent Canby, The New York Times). SEVEN DAYS IN MAY (1964) John Frankenheimer directed this suspense classic about a military plot to overthrow the government involving a hawkish general (Lancaster), a pacifist President (Frederic March) and the vigilant colonel (Kirk Douglas) who uncovers the plot. EXECUTIVE ACTION (1973) Who killed President John F. Kennedy? Burt Lancaster, Robert Ryan and Will Geer headline a probing and powerful What If? conspiracy thriller scripted by Dalton Trumbo. THE FLAME AND THE ARROW (1950) Flashing his trademark grin and leaping with acrobatic derring-do, Lancaster revitalized the Hollywood swashbuckler with this Robin Hood-like tale.

It is a fun and happy film.movie no. 2 The Flame and The Arrow a swashbucling adventure set in northern Italy while occupied by Germany in the middle ages. Not the finest movie of it's type but more than entertaining. This ofcourse brings us to Executive Action, one of the early films in the long list of films talking of the JFK assination. Found the story fun and entertaining with interesting plot points,only real problem is I do not buy into the hole conspiracy thing. A good yarn with a good cast and great preformances also interesting special features.Seven Days In May by far the best film in the colection and is worth the price of the entire set. A screan play written by Rod Serling about a planed military take over of the government by rouge military officers members of the joint chiefs of staff in fact(Lancaster as chairman of the joint chiefs). Have always liked Lancaster beter as a villian and he does not disapoint. Kirk Douglas is a marine corps officer who must stop him while keeping the whole plot secret. a truely great suspence thriller. "This one comes highly recomended."
