Seven Days in May
Seven Days in May is a 1964 thriller/drama film adapted from the novel of the same name by Fletcher Knebel and Charles W. Bailey II. The film stars Kirk Douglas as USMC Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey, who uncovers a plot led by General James Mattoon Scott (Burt Lancaster) to overthrow the President of the United States (Fredric March). The film was directed by John Frankenheimer from a screenplay by Rod Serling, the creator of the television series The Twilight Zone.
The following weapons were used in the film Seven Days in May:
When White House aide Paul Girard (Martin Balsam) goes to visit Admiral Barnswell at the U.S 6th Fleet in Gibraltar, he passes by a Marine guard with an M1 Garand rifle.
U.S Army soldiers at "Site Y" are armed with original-model M16 rifles, likely the earliest appearance of this weapon in any Hollywood film. Colonel William "Mutt" Henderson (Andrew Duggan) seizes an M16 from another soldier while helping Senator Raymond Clark (Edmond O'Brien) escape detention.
Tracked vehicles patrolling "Site Y" are fitted with Browning M1919A4 machine guns. Colonel Henderson orders a soldier at gunpoint to unload the cartridge belt from his Browning M1919A4 while helping Clark escape.
