Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
THE TENDER TRAP
Dir: Charles Walters
Debbie Reynolds stars as the ambitious Julie, who happens upon womanizing theatrical agent and Manhattan socialite Charlie Reader (Frank Sinatra). Celeste Holm is delightful as Reynolds’ prime competition.
Dir: Lewis Allen
In this tense thriller, Hayden plays a small-town sheriff confronting a trio of paid killers bent on assassinating the vacationing president of the United States. Frank Sinatra is electrifying as the boss bad guy; the actor-singer tried to buy up all copies of this film after the murder of John F. Kennedy. Lewis Allen provides his strongest directing effort for Richard Sale’s taut, suspenseful script.
Dir: John Frankenheimer
"Why don't you pass the time by playing a little solitaire?" Former POW Frank Sinatra tries to connect the dots when decorated comrade Laurence Harvey starts acting strangely, only to have a nightmarish labyrinth unravel in his lap. Korean War brainwashing, Harvey’s rich control-freak mother (Angela Lansbury), her right-wing candidate hubby (James Gregory in a savage parody of Senator Joseph McCarthy) and an assassination plot mesh in John Frankenheimer's masterfully woozy adaptation of Richard Condon’s satirical thriller. With Janet Leigh.
