Soviet and Chinese soldiers capture a U.S. Army platoon during the Korean War, and take the men to Manchuria in communist China. Three days later, Sergeant Raymond Shaw and Captain Bennett Marco return to UN lines. Upon Marco’s recommendation, Shaw is awarded the Medal of Honor for saving his soldiers’ lives in combat, though two men are killed in action. Shaw returns to the United States, where his heroism is exploited by his diabolical, politically motivated mother, Eleanor Iselin, whose subversive plans are to further the career of her husband, Senator John Iselin. When asked to describe Shaw, the other soldiers in his unit robotically respond, “Raymond Shaw is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I’ve ever known in my life.” On the contrary, Raymond Shaw is a cold, sad, unsympathetic loner.The Manchurian Candidate 1962 full Movie Download,
After Marco is promoted to major and assigned to Army Intelligence, he has a recurring nightmare: a hypnotized Shaw blithely murders the two soldiers from his own platoon before an assembly of communist military leaders to demonstrate their revolutionary brainwashing technique. Marco learns that another soldier from the platoon, Allen Melvin, has the same nightmare. When Melvin and he separately identify photos of the same two men—leading figures in communist governments—from their dreams, Army Intelligence agrees to help Marco investigate.The Manchurian Candidate 1962 full Movie Download.
During captivity, Shaw was programmed as a sleeper agent, who blindly obeys orders to kill without any memory of his crimes. His battle heroism was a false memory implanted during the platoon’s brainwashing. Agents trigger Shaw by suggesting he play solitaire; the queen of diamonds activates him. Eleanor masterminds the ascent of John, a McCarthy-like demagogue who makes baseless claims that communists work within the Department of Defense. Shaw repudiates his mother and stepfather by taking a job at a newspaper published by their rival, Holborn Gaines. Communist agents have Shaw murder Gaines to confirm that his brainwashing still works.The Manchurian Candidate 1962 full Movie Download.
