Composed By:  Jerry Goldsmith

“Some cool, biting dialogue, crisp direction by J. Lee Thompson and…excellent color photography in Hong Kong, Taiwan and simulated Oriental locales.”
– Howard Thompson, The New York Times

“A genuine, superbly handled exercise in edge-of-the-seat excitement.”
– Films and Filming

For their final film together following The Guns of Navarone (1961), Cape Fear (1962) and Mackenna’s Gold (1969), star Gregory Peck and director J. Lee Thompson team for the high-stakes espionage thriller The Chairman (1969). Securing a game-changing agricultural enzyme formula is the goal for a Nobel Prize-winning professor (Peck) visiting Communist China where, equipped with an implanted transmitter, he will meet scientists and the titular Chairman Mao himself. Also placed inside him: an explosive device to be triggered in case of failure. Written for the screen by Ben Maddow (The Asphalt Jungle) and scored by the peerless Jerry Goldsmith.
