The Manchurian Candidate

Part of The Films of Frank Sinatra
Friday, August 26, 2011, 7:00 p.m.

Dir. John Frankenheimer. 1962, 126 mins.

With Laurence Harvey, Janet Leigh. Sinatra is an Army Captain suffering from recurring nightmares in which a brainwashed soldier kills fellow Americans. The nightmares prove to be reality, part of a homegrown plot to bring totalitarianism to U.S. soil. This manic drama of paranoia and power is surely one of the strangest and strongest movies to ever come out of Hollywood.

Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students) and includes admission to the Museum's galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m.
