"Self/less" (scheduled for release 10 July) sees the revolutionary transfer of a dying man's (Ben Kingsley) consciousness into the body of a healthy young man (Ryan Reynolds). Of course, not all is as it seems...

Ironically, the film also has a previous life as "Seconds", a 1966 cult thriller starring Rock Hudson - based on David Ely's disturbing 1963 novel of the same name. The novel is now available as an e-book. AFPLS holds copies of the '66  film on DVD.

Do you remember?
