    OK, thanks Master...I'll take the pass...

    Keeping with the same theme and in rememberence of the 40th anniversary of the assassination of JFK..name the movie that was supposed to be released at the end of 1963 but had its release delayed for a number of years because the film's plot dealt with a conspiracy to assassinate the president?

    That was "Live From Baghdad." Have you seen it? Is it worth renting?

    Actually Sheela your answer to my clue was incorrect. The movie I was clueing in my question was "The Manchurian Candidate" - but no worries my friend. We can go ahead with your clue. :-)

    Daddio, it's my understanding that Manchurian Candidate was released before the assassination, while Dr Strangelove was delayed because of the assassination.

    Manchurian Candidate was released in October 1962. Angela Lansbury was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for the 1962 Oscars. When President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, there was speculation in some quarters that the movie had served as a blueprint for the assassination. The movie was withdrawn, supposedly because of lobbying by the President's close friend, Frank Sinatra. It was re-released in 1987.

    Dr Strangelove, however, was scheduled for release in December 1963. It was delayed until January 1964 as a result of the assassination. Some web sites erroneously list its release date as 1963, but that was only its scheduled, not its actual, release date. Also, some lines of dialogue were altered because of the assassination.

    I find this fascinating.

    Manchurian Candidate is one of my all-time favorites. As is Dr Strangelove.
