The Manchurian Candidate (1962)

The Manchurian Candidate (1962)

When the Manchurian Candidate was released in the Fall of 1962, it failed to recover its costs.  It was called "a flop."  Two years later, it was pulled from distribution because of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.  It was not shown again in a movie theatre until 1987, nearly the end of the Cold War. 

Join us for a discussion of the novel on which the movie was based and a showing of the movie 23 October, 2017, 2:00 PM.  Casino Theatre, St. Simons, Georgia  912-399-8481




, “The Manchurian Candidate” was a flop. It was released in the fall of 1962, failed to recover its costs, and was pulled from distribution two years later, after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It turned up a few times on television, but it was not shown in a movie theatre again until 1987, which—nearly the end of the Cold War—is the year its popularity dates from. The true artifact of Cold War culture is the novel, by Richard Condon, that the movie was based on.
