john frankenheimer r.i.p.
Film director John Frankenheimer, who helmed the classic thrillers The Manchurian Candidate and Seven Days in May, died Saturday of a stroke. He was 72.
Frankenheimer also directed the 1979 horror film Prophecy. Although watching it again last Halloween, I realized it fell short in the scare department, back in my Boy Scout days, it was the film's camper-eating mutant bear and not ghost stories we used to scare each other.
