Storyline

A movie about the sudden disappearance of a top Presidential adviser. Grilled by the media, the President's press secretary reveals very little, simply because he knows very little. But the chief executive himself has more information than he's willing to make public; the FBI has proof that the vanished adviser was homosexual, and subject to blackmail. Written by Ørnås

First two-part TV movie

"Vanished" has earned a place in history as the first made for television movie to air in two parts, which, I suppose, may also make it the first mini-series. Quantity and quality are not the same thing, of course, and little about "Vanished" prevents it from being your standard TV suspenser. It does boast a terrific cast, though, with Richard Widmark very impressive indeed as the President of the United States. Too bad that other Richard--you know, Nixon, who was President at the time this movie aired--hadn't stepped aside to make room for the former Tommy Udo (see "Kiss of Death" for details).
