1954s "Suddenly" Frank Sinatra plays John Baron, an assassin disguised as an FBI agent who has just arrived in the town of Suddenly, California, where the president is schedualed to pass through. A lesser known member of the post-war noir cycle, Suddenly has been considered a major influence on the "Manchurian Candidate". It is a bleak, sometimes ruthless, challengingly amoral piece of cinema. A must see for fans of noir.
