Frank Sinatra has given his personal OK to the re-release of the 1962 movie "The Manchurian Candidate," in which a Korean War prisoner is brainwashed to assassinate a liberal politician. The movie stars Sinatra, Laurence Harvey, Janet Leigh and Angela Lansbury. Sinatra, who pushed to have the movie done at United Artists, controls its rights and had refused to release it save to a few selected film festivals. The movie will be released for theatrical showing in early 1988, and a home videocassette also is planned.
