Tender Flesh

1974, R, 99 min. Directed by Laurence Harvey. Starring Laurence Harvey, Meg Foster, John Ireland, Stuart Whitman.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., Sept. 13, 2001

Harvey's final film is also known as Welcome to Arrow Beach. He plays a Korean war vet who ate flesh in the jungle and now, back in the States, just can't stop. Good cast helps this oddball studio film.

The Manchurian Candidate
Decades before U.S. intelligence got hip to the notion of "sleeper agents" in our midst, The Manchurian Candidate successfully tried out the idea in this post-Korean War setting. (Last year it was re-made in a post-gulf war setting.) The result is a chilling story about brainwashing, secret political agendas, power-hungry moms, and psychically ravaged veterans.
