Reviews
Mine: Terrific thriller. Who know that Sinatra could act this well and the Angela Lansbury could be that evil. A must see if you like thrillers at all.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Tingling political paranoia thriller about strange aftermath of a Korean war hero's decoration and his mother's machinations to promote her Joseph McCarthy-like husband's career. Harrowing presentation of Richard Condon story (adapted by George Axelrod). Score by David Amram. Rereleased theatrically in 1987.
