MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, THE (1962)

55th Anniversary

John Frankenheimer's renowned take on McCarthyism and Cold War fanaticism stars Laurence Harvey as a U.S. soldier abducted during the Korean War. In Manchuria, a Communist cell brainwashes him before returning him to the U.S. to serve as an unwitting political assassin. Army buddy Frank Sinatra has hallucinatory dreams and begins to piece together the deadly truth — that Harvey is a ticking time bomb — while the clock counts down to a political rally where everything is at stake. Oscar®-nominated Angela Lansbury terrifies as Harvey's domineering mother — #21 on AFI's 100 Years…100 Heroes & Villains. DIR/PROD John Frankenheimer; SCR/PROD George Axelrod, from the novel by Richard Condon. U.S., 1962, b&w, 126 min. NOT RATED
