Shown in conjunction with The Galleries' exhibition Deb Sokolow: All Your Vulnerabilities Will Be Assessed, this is one in a series of conspiracy theory film screenings.
This expert political thriller, thanks in part to a fascinating plot line, emerges as one of the tautest films ever made. Its premise is diabolical: while being held prisoner in Korea, an American G.I. is programmed by the Chinese Communists to kill at will. The suspense builds to a riveting, action-packed political assassination finale in Madison Square Garden.
