Tense, gripping, fascinating look at a few days when the world came closer than it ever has to Annihilation. 70's underrated staple William Devane makes a perfect John F. Kennedy, and Martin Sheen is just as good as Bobby Kennedy. The unpolished look of the film actually helps it make the viewer think he or she is there with the Kennedys and their staff and explores the real motivations of the individuals at a critical historical moment. Top notch.

I saw this on ABC when it first aired in 1974. It is a bit boring, but was written very well. With a great cast. Not until the movie 13 Days in 1999. Did any other actors play the Kennedys so well. Both young William DeVane as JFK & Martin Sheen as Robert Kennedy were both dead on!

Not as good as Roger Donaldson's Thirteen Days, made 27 years later. But the Missiles of October film got there first, and it's still good and worthwhile. Also it's interesting to see differences in what was known then, historical, compared to what we now know and see in Donaldson's later film.
