Movie Matinee - The Manchurian Candidate (1962)

April 17, 2013

Program Locations:

Pelham Parkway-Van Nest Library

Join us for a classic movie every Wednesday morning.

This week's movie is: The Manchurian Candidate (1962). This expert political thriller, thanks in part to a fascinating plot line, emerges as one of the tautest films ever made. Its premise is diabolical: while being held prisoner in Korea, an American G.I. is programmed by the Chinese Communists to kill at will. The suspense builds to a riveting, action-packed political assassination finale in Madison Square Garden.

Starring Frank Sinatra and Laurence Harvey. MGM/UA. Black and White. Rated PG-13. 126 minutes.
