"Starting Over in America: John Frankenheimer’s Seconds"

With film critic Michael Atkinson and economist Darrick Hamilton in person–at the Museum of the Moving Image on Sunday, April 29–discussing the economics of the American Dream.

Seconds (1966) is the last in what is known as John Frankenheimer's paranoia trilogy, preceded by The Manchurian Candidate and Seven Days In May. A middle-aged, married banker in New York is offered a chance at a second life. Arthur Hamilton (John Randolph, then on the Hollywood blacklist) undergoes complete reconstructive surgery to become Tony Wilson (Rock Hudson)–a younger, single artist living in Malibu. Masterful cinematographer James Wong Howe, nominated for an Academy Award for this film, shot in black-and-white and used misshapen lenses to create a surreal atmosphere as Arthur Hamilton’s dream of a new life turns into a waking nightmare.

This program is part of #ScienceOnScreen, a series organized by Sonia Epstein, Executive Editor of Museum of Museum of the Moving Image: Sloan Science & Film.
