THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE
1962, Park Circus, 126 min, USA, Dir: John Frankenheimer

"Why don't you pass the time by playing a little solitaire?" Former POW Frank Sinatra tries to connect the dots when decorated comrade Laurence Harvey starts acting strangely, only to have a nightmarish labyrinth unravel in his lap. Korean War brainwashing, Harvey’s rich control-freak mother (Angela Lansbury), her right-wing candidate hubby (James Gregory in a savage parody of Sen. Joseph McCarthy) and an assassination plot mesh in John Frankenheimer's masterfully woozy adaptation of Richard Condon’s satirical thriller. With Janet Leigh.


60th Anniversary!

THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM
1955, Preminger Films, 119 min, USA, Dir: Otto Preminger

Director Otto Preminger defied the Production Code for the second time with this first American film about drug addiction. Frank Sinatra, in the performance of his career, plays a junkie jazz drummer and card sharp torn between love for his girlfriend (Kim Novak), a sad-eyed cashier in a strip club, and loyalty to his crippled wife (Eleanor Parker). Darren McGavin (“The Night Stalker”) is the villainous heroin pusher. Shooting in the studio rather than on location, Preminger creates a richly atmospheric, lower-depths milieu. Elmer Bernstein’s moody, compelling jazz score and Saul Bass’ seductive opening titles are memorable.


Screening formats: DCP (THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE) and 35mm (THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM). THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM restored by the Academy Film Archive with funding from the Film Foundation and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
