“The Manchurian Candidate” quotes(1962)
Plot – In Korea, a US patrol is imprisoned and conducted to Manchuria, where he is subjected to harsh treatments. The men lose their sense of reality and one of them, Raymond, kills two of his comrades. None of them will remember this fact. Once back home, Commander Bennett Marco feels upset but he cannot explain why. During the night he has nightmares, until he decides to look for Raymond, who in the meantime has received a medal for his bravery. Raymond lives with his mother and, amazingly, with the Korean soldier who caused their capture and now works in his house as waiter. The former commander doesn't take so long to realize Raymond, under suggestion, commits a crime every time he sees the Queen of Diamonds card.
