* BackedByThePentagon: Definitely not, for obvious reasons; though as mentioned on [[Literature/SevenDaysInMay the main page]], UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy gave the movie his covert support.
** This caused John Frankenheimer to resort to RefugeInAudacity to get a needed shot of "Jiggs" Casey entering the Pentagon, which the Pentagon refused permission for obvious reasons. So, he got Kirk Douglas in full uniform and walked him up the steps of the Pentagon while filming from a parked car. Quite coincidentally, a couple of soldiers were walking down the steps as Douglas was ascending them. Not realizing who they were passing by, they gave what they took to be a superior officer a genuine salute, which Douglas, not missing a beat, returned. [[ThrowItIn Needless to say, this bit of unscripted and unplanned verisimilitude made it into the film.]]
* [[BannedInChina Banned in Brazil]]: The UsefulNotes/{{Brazil}}ian government banned the film because its plot was too similar to the MilitaryCoup the country had just gone through in RealLife.
