1966, Paramount, 106 min, USA, Dir: John Frankenheimer

Rock Hudson delivers a powerhouse performance in this critically acclaimed suspense-thriller from director John Frankenheimer (THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE). Desperate to escape his dreary, dead-end life, aging banker Arthur Hamilton (John Randolph) succumbs to a mysterious organization's offer of a new identity and a fresh start. Surgically transformed into the handsome, young Tony Wilson (Hudson), he begins a jet-set existence among a shadowy community of similar "Reborns." But Tony's heady exhilaration spirals into heart-stopping terror as he discovers that his newly purchased life carries a terrifying price.
