The Manchurian candidate by John Frankenheimer ( Visual )
22 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 3,105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Among the most taut and influential thrillers ever produced, director John Frankenheimer's The Manchurian Candidate is a bleak, mordant spy thriller in which communist brainwashing and mother love make a potentially lethal combination. Plagued by recurring nightmares, a shell-shocked career soldier (Frank Sinatra) begins to suspect that a fellow GI (Laurence Harvey) is not in fact a war hero, but rather a brainwashed enemy operative. If he's right, can he figure out his old pal's mission? Frankenheimer made a pair of disturbing, noirish masterpieces in the early '60s; this film and Seconds. Both offer subversive visions of modern society and the illusions it perpetuates, but The Manchurian Candidate benefits from a superior cast. In a film filled with exceptional performances, Angela Lansbury stands out, brilliantly alternating between the simpering, supportive wife and mother she plays in public and the steely, ruthless puppet master she is behind the scenes. Featuring crisp, expressionistic black and white cinematography and an early -- for Hollywood -- bout of onscreen martial arts, The Manchurian Candidate is a textbook on how to construct an unforgettable and thought-provoking political thriller
