Watch This 1996 Interview with Legendary Director John Frankenheimer on the Worst Day in Janet Leigh’s Life, and on Shooting His 1962 Masterpiece, The Manchurian Candidate


This is the scene that John Frankenheimer (1930-2002) shot of Janet Leigh (1927-2004)—and Frank Sinatra (1915-1998)—on what was then probably the worst day of her life, not in spite of that, but because of it, to buck her up!
