COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
The US Vice President has recently died, without yet being replaced, when the President is killed in a building collapse. The President pro tempore of the Senate declines to assume the Presidency because of his own age and ill health. Speaker of the House Douglas Dilman (James Earl Jones) suddenly becomes the first black man to occupy the Oval Office. The events from that day to the next election when he must decide if he will actually run challenge his skills as a politician and leader.
