From the Back Cover:

It may be the most sophisticated political thriller ever made in Hollywood, Pauline Kael wrote of this film, John Frankenheimer's terrifying 1962 political thriller about an American serviceman brainwashed in Korea and made into an assassin. Sophisticated to be sure, it's also a headlong fall through the looking-glass of American politics and the most deeply prophetic film of the second half of the American century. As Griel Marcus reconstructs the drama, "The Manchurian Candidate" is a movie in which the director and actors were suddenly capable of anything, beyond any expectations. He shows how the film has burrowed into American culture.

About the Author:

Greil Marcus is the author of Mystery Train (1975), Lipstick Traces (1989), The Old, Weird America: The World of Bob Dylan's Basement Tapes (1997/2001) and Double Trouble: Bill Clinton and Elvis Presley in the Land of No Alternatives (2000). In 2001 he taught an American Studies seminar on 'Prophecy and the American Voice' at Princeton and the University of California, Berkeley.
