John Frankenheimer
USA 1962
126 min

After being suppressed for 25 years after its first run, John Frankenheimers 1962 masterpiece re-emerges as one of the best and brightest of modern American films. In a riveting opening sequence, a group of American combat infantrymen are shown being brainwashed by a confident Chinese Communist hypnotist, who has them so surely under his control that one man is ordered to strangle his buddy and cheerfully complies. The Manchurian Candidate was shelved in a dispute between United Artists and Sinatra, who held a controlling interest in the film. For more than 25 years, memories of The Manchurian Candidate have tantalized those who saw it at the time.
