"In one of the film's best sequences, James Bond (Roger Moore) robbed a jazzy red AMC Hornet Hatchback from a dealership in Bangkok, Thailand, drove it through the showroom's glass windows, and onto the streets of the bustling city, in order to rescue his inept, kidnapped fellow agent Mary Goodnight (Britt Ekland). After missing a turn in his pursuit of villain Scaramanga's (Christopher Lee) bronze, black-roofed two-door AMC Matador, in a most impressive car stunt (accompanied by a laughable, ca"

"When Frankie Machine (Frank Sinatra), a former heroin addict and skilled card dealer, is released from prison he returns home to his crippled wife (Eleanor Parker). Vowing to look after her and be the husband she needs, it isn’t long before Frankie is desperately fighting to avoid being dragged back to his former ways… Tackling the issues of drug addiction in an open and frank way, The Man with the Golden Arm was relatively controversial upon its release and depicted Sinatra in a way that"

" Frank Sinatra steps out of his classy rat pack swinger role, and steps into the shoes of a trouble-addled heroin addict. Frank shows his acting chops and true talent, and boy is he amazing."

"Indeed this is just another film about drug addiction, but the graphic presentation of the topic outshines many other films of its time. Hats off to Frank Sinatra, who completely giving what could possibly be the greatest performance of his career. "

The 67 Most Influential Films Ever Made (67 movies items)

"Influential, How? Hollywood tackles hard drugs. Sidestepping the censors’ Production Code, this downbeat flick mainlined controversy with a taboo-shattering take on heroin addiction. With Frank Sinatra hooked on dope, The Man... is the granddaddy of smack-pics from Trainspotting to Requiem For A Dream. Money Shot: Ol' Blue Eyes going cold turkey in a shitty apartment. "

The 25 Best Movie Posters Ever (25 movies items)

" The stark simplicity of Bass's poster for 1955's The Man With the Golden Arm was perhaps the designer's most daring work. The poster for the film, which stars Frank Sinatra as a man in the throes of drug addiction, conveys the essence of the main character's struggle without being preachy. Other posters were commissioned that featured the faces of Sinatra and Kim Novak, but the twisted arm remains timeless."
