Suddenly next Friday

Looking through the films on television next week, one stands out. Suddenly is a moody thriller from 1954 starring Frank Sinatra as the leader of a gang plotting to assassinate the President.

The film is on BBC at 0035, so really it is on Saturday morning.

The story goes that Lee Harvey Oswald watched this film a few days before he shot President Kennedy. When Sinatra learned of this, he had the film withdrawn to protect his reputation.

Reader's voice: But Oswald didn't shoot Kennedy.

House Points replies: Go away and take your silly conspiracy theories with you.
