Analysis of Seven Days in MayFull of indirect references of the United States government during the time of the Cold War, the film, Seven Days in May, is an excellent example of the problems arising within the government and the people during the time of this war. The film displays the lack of confidence in the President, the agreements made by the United States to the Soviet Union, the lack of trust the Americans had in the Soviets, and the moves made by the United States to protect the country.In the film, the president appeared to be much less affluent than his generals when it comes to the way the United States perceives the government. General Scott was looked on with more value because he influenced the nation to perceive that he was on their side, and that he had the same ideals as the American people did.

At this news, the American people were very upset, even though MacArthur was lawfully the one creating a problem.Pp. 777-778During the movie, the President signed an agreement with the Soviets to disarm their navy completely, despite what his Generals advised him to do. He began to put this agreement into action, even though he knew the Soviets had a poor reputation in keeping treaties. A very similar event took place in real life before the Cold War started. President Truman began to disarm his army and the Soviets agreed to allow free and open elections in Eastern European lands, such as Poland. The Soviets, however, did not keep their end of the deal, ultimately causing large disagreements with the United States. The Soviet Union not only controlled elections in Eastern Europe, they began to invade and...
