The Manchurian Candidate is a 1962 Cold War Classic starring Frank Sinatra that tells the story of a platoon of U.S. soldiers captured by communists and turned into brainwashed sleepers, near the end of the Korean War. After returning home, the platoon commander finds himself plagued by strange nightmares.

Directed and produced by John Frankenheimer, screenplay by George Axelrod, and based on the 1959 Richard Condon novel The Manchurian Candidate.
