THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE

Part of Weekend Classics: Politics in B&W.

With one phone call, the Reds can transform a brainwashed Korean War hero (Laurence Harvey) into a assassin—unless his fellow vet (Frank Sinatra) can stop them first. John Frankenheimer's classic blend of satire and political thriller was uncomfortably prescient in its own time, leading to bans in even some neutral countries. Co-starring Janet Leigh and Angela Lansbury.

“A veritable salad of mixed genres and emotional textures, this exciting black-and-white Cold War thriller runs more than two hours and never flags for an instant… A powerful experience, alternately corrosive with dark parodic humor, suspenseful, moving, and terrifying.” —Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
