The Manmchurian Candidates. A celebration of Paranoia. Directed by John Frankenheimer from a George Azerrod script. It's a Cold War fantary which mocks both the Left and Right sides of the Iron and Bamboo curtains(remember them?) Lawrence Harvey is a Korean War brainwashed by Red Chinese is become an assassin-on-request. But the plot is not as it seems, for the actual conspiracy which controls him is a union of yellow and white Leninist`s with McCarthyites. Frank Sinatra plays the good guy in the film, an Army buddy of Harvey's who senses something's wrong. The foreign agents' dialogue is amusingly epigrammatic, the film in general is suspenseful and funny.

Some Like It Hot Billy Wilder`s hilarious force about a pair of musical Chicago ne'er-de-wells who get caught in the crossfire of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre and flee to Florida with a girls' band. With Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis in drag, and Marilya Monroe out of it.

Suddenly, Last Summer, Tennessee Williams at his ripest, with appropriate support from Joseph Mankiewicz, who directed and Gore Vidal, who wrote the screenplay. Katherine Hepburn is Aunt Venable, raising carnivorous plants in her garden and dreaming of her son, Sebastian, a gay post who ended up being eaten by canaibah. Elizabeth Taylor is the traumatized niece who witnessed the set, and Montgomery Clift is the shrink who cures her. Overacted, overwritten and overheated.
