||Synopsis: Major Ben Marco is an intelligence officer in the U.S. Army. He served valiantly as a captain in the Korean war and his Sergeant, Raymond Shaw, even won the Medal of Honor. Marco has a major problem however: he has a recurring nightmare, one where two members of his squad are killed by Shaw. He's put on indefinite sick leave and visits Shaw in New York. Shaw for his part has established himself well, despite the misgivings of his domineering mother, Mrs. Eleanor Shaw Iselin. She is a red-baiter, accusing anyone who disagrees with her right-wing reactionary views of being a Communist. Raymond hates her, not only for how she's treated him but equally because of his step-father, the ineffectual U.S. Senator John Iselin, who is intent on seeking higher office. When Marco learns that others in his Korean War unit have nightmares similar to his own, he realizes that something happened to all of them in Korea and that Raymond Shaw is the focal point.

medal of honor for rescuing his POW platoon from behind Chinese lines and
back to safety. One of the returning soldiers, (played effectively by
Sinatra) however, has recurring dreams of his platoon being brainwashed and
Shaw committing acts of murder.
He eventually convinces army brass that Shaw is still a puppet of his
Angela Lansbury, (although barely a few years older than Harvey was at the
time) plays his mother in a tour de force role. She absolutely captivates
and steals every scene she is in, playing a very complex role that needs to
convince the viewer of many things without much dialogue.
There's a rich cast of characters, including Janet Leigh, Henry Silva,
Edwards, and a painfully accurate James Gregory. Each character weaves
through the methodical subplots and tapestry of Frankenheimer's masterful
I won't give away the plot, but dear readers, allow me to sat that this one
is really worth watching--until the nail-biting and chilling conclusion.
There are many undertones in this film -- political, sexual, class and
power, and social. You will want to view this film several times to
approach it from different perspectives.
