Synopsis: Made into a Major Motion Picture

The controversial 1962 film of The Manchurian Candidate was taken out of circulation for twenty-five years after JFK's assassination. Equally controversial, and just as timely today, is Richard Condon's original novel. Published at the height of cold war paranoia, this terrifying and suspenseful political thriller features Sergeant Raymond Shaw, ex-prisoner of war, Medal of Honor winner, American hero . . . and brainwashed assassin.

Review: Richard Condon's 1959 Cold War thriller remains just as chilling today. It's the story of Sgt. Raymond Shaw, an ex-prisoner of war (and winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor) who, brainwashed with the rest of his unit by a Chinese psychological expert during his captivity in North Korea, has come home programmed to kill. His primary target is a U.S. presidential nominee. Made into a controversial 1962 movie with Laurence Harvey, Frank Sinatra, and Angela Lansbury.
