Playing as part of our series The Future is NOW: Film Noir Hybrids for the Nervous Generation . Hosted by noir expert Elliot Lavine.

From the director of THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE comes this nerve-shattering tale of the not-too-distant future where anyone with enough cash can trade their old, used up body for a younger one, replete with a completely new identity and life. One recipient of this transformation, a bored, 50 year old New York banker, now living as a much younger successful California artist is faced with a startling revelation, providing him with second thoughts about his decision. His attempt to return to his former life leads to a stunning and unexpected conclusion. Starring Rock Hudson, with brilliant, visionary cinematography from James Wong Howe. Directed by John Frankenheimer.
