Original United Artists Three Sheet Poster (41x81). Folded. Very Fine Condition.

Original United Artists Three Sheet Poster (41x81) for the John Frankenheimer mystery thriller, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962) starring Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey, Janet Leigh, and Angela Lansbury. Based on a novel by Richard Condon, this excellent thriller tells the story of a former Korean War POW (Harvey) who is brainwashed by the Chinese communists into becoming a political assassin. An eerie coincidence, the film dealing with the assassination of an American presidential candidate was released in the U.S. in the year before the real-life assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The topic of the film was so politically sensitive that it was prohibited in the former "Iron Curtain" countries until after the fall of the Soviet Union. Angela Lansbury, who absolutely captivates and steals every scene she is in, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. This original three sheet poster is folded and in very fine condition. It appears to have never been used and is unassembled.
