Book Vs. Movie: Seconds

The 1963 Book Vs. The 1966 Movie

The Margos are set to permanently change our lives with “Seconds,” a 1966 American science fiction drama directed by John Frankenheimer. The film is based on David Ely’s 1963 novel of the same name and stars Rock Hudson in a bravura performance. The plot centers around Arthur Hamilton, a middle-aged banker allowed to start a new life through a mysterious organization that offers a radical and experimental procedure to create a “second” identity. After undergoing surgery and assuming a new identity as Tony Wilson (played by Hudson), Hamilton begins his new life, only to find that his past and the haunting consequences of his decision continue to follow him.

“Seconds” is known for its unsettling atmosphere, themes of identity and existential dread, and its innovative and disturbing cinematography by James Wong Howe. Despite its initial mixed reception, the film has gained a cult following and is considered a significant work in the science fiction and psychological thriller genres.
