The Manchurian Candidate (1962) Presented by Terry Meehan
Directed by John Frankenheimer. During the Korean War, a U.S. platoon is captured and taken to a mysterious location in Communist China. Somehow the men make it back to U.S. lines, and the platoon leader, Captain Marco (Frank Sinatra), declares Sergeant Shaw (Laurence Harvey) a war hero, but something is not quite right. Terry Meehan continues his series Cold War Chronicles, introducing each film with an original video, followed by audience reaction and a lively discussion.
