A decorated Korean War veteran has been brainwashed to commit political assassinations. His old military commander begins to suspect and must stop him. Includes a commentary by John Frankenheimer; cast and crew interviews; featurettes; and much more.
Sinatra, a brain-washed, former POW from the Korean War, suspects that a fellow solder, hailed as a hero, is actually something else. Harvey is the hero who has been trained as an assassin, and a Queen of Hearts is the key to his personality.
