Visit the Wonder: Art and Science on the Brain

Korean War veteran Major Marco (Frank Sinatra) is troubled by a recurring nightmare in which war hero Raymond Shaw (Laurence Harvey) carries out Communist instructions to shoot fellow American PoWs. Working for Intelligence, Marco unravels a Commie plot to brainwash his old platoon and to turn Shaw into an assassin. Who is Shaw’s American control, and who is the target? One of the greatest paranoid thrillers and nastiest political satires ever.

US 1962 Dir John Frankenheimer 126 min
