Seconds 1966
Rock Hudson - Salome Jens
directed by John Frankenheimer

     Who would turn down a second chance to live one's life over again in a perfect beautiful body -- but at what price? Seconds, released in 1966, was a departure for Rock Hudson, mostly known for romantic romps or being a good-looking soldier. Hudson showed his acting range in this cult classic about re-borns, by director John Frankenheimer. Seconds is an eerie combo of sci-fi thriller and doomed film noir. The director of photography is the legendary John Wong Howe, who made some pioneering camera work in Seconds: fish eye lens, foot-level shots, hand-held in black and white, his specialty. Though Seconds the movie is more than 40 years old, the story holds up today perhaps with the exception of the bacchanal scene which is tame but still over the top for the intent of the story.

     The film is in widescreen, enhanced for 16:9 televisions and the digital transfer was superbly done. It has running commentary by Frankenheimer, menus and scene selection, original theatrical trailer. To see a scene from our YouTube upload please see the end for our link.

       Frankenheimer's story about "reborns" -- the name for those who get the second chance -- is considered among his trilogy of paranoia film noir, with his other movies The Birdman of Alcatraz and The Manchurian Candidate. He also made Seven Days in May. For light shipping the DVD comes in a protective sleeve, no art, and ships first class $4 in the U.S. and $8 to anywhere outside the US.
