I already saw this movie but, the first time around, it was on the BBC so I was quite eager to watch it again but with some subtitles this time around.

" First Viewing Viewing Date: November 20th Via: iTunes Store Plot: An American POW in the Korean War is brainwashed as an unwitting assassin for an international Communist conspiracy. Rating: 7.9/10 Why Did I Watch It? It was a cheap rental, and I've been meaning to watch this one for years. The remake leaves Netflix this month so I figured it was the perfect time to see both movies."
