OK, so what exactly was going on in this movie? I don’t mean the “analysis” of “unhappy middle-aged man unable to reconcile the conflict with new strapping young body, etc.”
I mean just the plain ol’ story:
John Randolph seemed absolutely clueless about what was happening to him, or where he was. Did this “organization” just pick up random people to transplant into younger bodies?
At the end, when Rock Hudson’s body (currently occupied by John Randolph) is about to be recycled again, why? He was having trouble adjusting, but what was the point in killing him? Were they afraid he would rat them out? And just who were “they?”
I have a little better handle on the “moral” and “symbolism” than the story that is attempting to convey them–or at least I think.
(Trivia alert: This movie affords a rare glimpse of Richard Anderson–Bionic chief Oscar Goldman–sans hairpiece.)
