    I saw this film some time ago and always thought it was called the man who couldn't die, put after searching with no luck I thought I would ask here.



    Not sure of the year, 60's or 70's



    Film starts off with a man being knocked down in london bay a car/bus/lorry, as people rush over they see a hamster/gerbil crawl out of his pocket and the man looks hundreds of years old.



    The film then is a flashback to the turn of the century, a photographer who's job is to capture men hanging at a prison, notices that death is caught at the last minute in his flash powder.



    He then figures out that if he can capture death in his flash powder, if he bottled it he would not die. His first attempt on the hamster works.



    he decides that he, his daughter and son in law should all go through this death experience so he can capture it and they all can live for ever.



    He makes a pact with his son in law that they should hide each other bottled death so that they would never know where it is and live for ever.



    In order to do this of cause they must kill each other/themselves so that death comes and can be caught.



    The photographer agrees to go first and is a success, he then attempts his daughter but fails to capture death at the last minute as she dies. He can't live with himself after that, except of course he as too as he can not die.



    I would love to find this movie on DVD



    Thanks in advance
