I'm not sure how broadly the Saturday "Reel 13" program is shown on other PBS stations, but the New York PBS affiliate, WNET, was showing two Russian-themed films for their weekly program: The Manchurian Candidate
and Within the Whirlwind
The Manchurian Candidate
is, of course, a great, famous classic that everyone should see, anyway. But it's particularly fun and relevant now (I notice that the phrase has been used a lot in the news lately). With lines like:
There are people who think of Johnny as a clown and a buffoon, but I do not.... I think, if John Iselin were a paid Soviet agent, he could not do more to harm this country than he's doing now.
I'd heard that the movie was pulled from circulation after the Kennedy assassination and wasn't shown again for twenty years.
