Well, I love SECONDS - it's my favorite Frankenheimer film, even more than THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE - and I think Hudson is very good in it, but all due respect, I guess I'm one of those know-somethings who is not a fan of him otherwise. I think of Hudson's acting the way many people I know think of Gary Cooper.


I find the "brooding" Rock Hudson much in line with the performances of Gregory Peck. Is it strange to think Hudson could have made a good Atticus Finch in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD but Peck would have made a dull Tony Wilson in SECONDS? Also, as a side note, is there anything more nightmarish than Will Greer and Murray Hamilton?
