Patrician Korean War vet Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) returned to his politically-placed family a Medal of Honor winner for his combat bravery. Now, however, his former C.O. Ben Marco (Frank Sinatra) is plagued by strange dreams of their time in Red Chinese custody...and, once convinced both had been brainwashed, must stop Shaw before he's post-hypnotically turned into an assassin. John Frankenheimer's blend of Cold War paranoia and sly satire co-stars Angela Lansbury, Janet Leigh, James Gregory. 127 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English (SDH); audio commentary by Frankenheimer; interviews; featurettes; theatrical trailer.
Sinatra, a brain-washed, former POW from the Korean War, suspects that a fellow solder, hailed as a hero, is actually something else. Harvey is the "hero" who has been trained as an assassin, and a Queen of Hearts is the key to his personality.
