John Frankenheimer, director of "Seven Days in May", provides a
commentary track on the DVD release of the movie.

He tells the story about when filming, their Pentagon set was too
big to fit in the studio, so they used foreshortening when filming
long corridors there. To carry off the illusion, he hired midgets,
he claims, to walk around the farther areas of the corridors, including
midget generals. Ho notes that one of the biggest problems of his
production was in the supplying uniforms for these midget generals.

How is it I never knew that for all these years?
