American actor and filmmaker Sylvester Stallone wrote on his Twitter account:
I voted did you? Gotta get the Manchurian Candidate out of the drivers seat before were ALL soaring off a cliff into Oblivion … Be smart.”
The last MAN started the mess now the NEW MAN wants to make permanent…. Ignore the lies, OPEN your eyes!
The Manchurian Candidate was a movie about fake president who was put there by foreign enemies to destroy America.Scary concept. Rise up!”
The greatest conspiracy in world history is being carried out by the real-life “Manchurian Candidate”: President Barack Obama.
My definition of a “Manchurian Candidate”is a person who hates everything America stands for and whose goal is to win the presidency for the express purpose of destroying the greatest nation.
Some celebrities pretend not to care who you vote for, just as long as you vote.
Clint Eastwood and Clint Howard seem to agree with Stallone.
The Manchurian Candidate is a 1962 American Cold War suspense thriller film directed and produced by John Frankenheimer and written by George Axelrod, based on the 1959 Richard Condon novel The Manchurian Candidate.
The film was released in the United States on October 24, 1962, at the height of U.S.-Soviet hostility during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
It was well-received by critics and was nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actress(Lansbury) and Best Editing. It was seen by far fewer people at the time than other classic films.
The Manchurian Candidate on his “Great Movies” list, declaring that it is “inventive and frisky, takes enormous chances with the audience, and plays not like a ‘classic’ but as a work as alive and smart as when it was first released.
The Hollywood Reporter asked him to explain.
Stallone now insists that despite his (factually iffy) insistence that The Manchurian Candidate was about a “fake president,” he actually meant “Manchurian candidate” as a reference to “all career politicians.”
