See this film: Seconds @ the HFA

After making The Manchurian Candidate (1962) and Seven Days in May (1964) John Frankenheimer wrapped up his creepily paranoid but uncannily prescient trilogy of political thrillers with the lesser known Seconds (1966). In it Rock Hudson plays a staid businessman who, Philip K. Dick-style, employs a mysterious company to extract him from his dull but respectable life and provide him with a new identity as a louche Malibu artist. But is he really happy? Maybe he should have gone with plan B and become a tennis pro instead. It screens at the Harvard Film Archive in the Carpenter Center, 24 Quincy St, Cambridge | Monday, August 6 @ 7 pm | $9; $7 students, seniors | 617.495.4700 or
