Was Angela Lansbury, Nancy Sinatra, & Rory Emerald in the original 1962 film, The Manchurian Candidate?

Was Laurence Harvey, James Gregory, Leslie Parrish, John McGiver, Khigh Dhiegh, James Edwards, and Mia Farrow in this movie? Who (exactly) was in this picture and what can you tell me about it? Wasn't there a remake of The Manchurian Candidate just recently?

    Angela Lansbury and Lawrence Harvey I know are in the movie along with Frank Sinatra. The moive is about a group of soldiers who are brainwashed in believing something happened that didn't while involved in a war. Lawrence Harvey is brainwashed in killing some people, while Frank Sinatra was figuring out what the hell happened and was going on. The end I will not give away in case you want to see it. And yes, there was a remake. It stars Denzel Washington. You can watch the two and immediatly notice some differences. Both are good though.

    Yes there was a recent remake and I don't know if all those people were in hte orginal but I know some were. The orginal was basically kept out of the theaters because of the whole communist/McCarthy thing. So no one really remembers it. Although you could proably buy a copy of it if you really wanted to.
