Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey, Janet Leigh and Angela Lansbury star in this political suspense classic about the drug-hypnosis-induced behavior that transforms a U.S. Army hero into a human time bomb. Angela Lansbury’s character was selected by Time as one of the “25 greatest villains in cinema history”. Lansbury was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actress.
A classic blend of satire and political thriller that was uncomfortably prescient in its own time, The Manchurian Candidate remains distressingly relevant today.
