“Why don’t you pass the time with a game of solitaire?”

How much cooler a trigger is that than the one they came up with in Demme’s remake? Don’t know what I’m talking about? Then maybe you should go see the original Manchurian Candidate to find out.
Scratch that. I command you to go see it. Take out a deck of cards and play solitaire until the Red Queen is staring you in the face. Then re-read that line where I command you to go see Frankenheimer’s version of the Manchurian Candidate.
Do you feel that irresistible urge to see it now? I thought so.
The original Manchurian Candidate is up for reelection this week at the Kennedy Center’s movie theater . It is playing twice a day for one-week starting today.
