Summary, etc.:
The definitive biography of the deeply complex and widely misunderstood matinee idol of Hollywood’s Golden Age.  Devastatingly handsome, broad-shouldered and clean-cut, Rock Hudson was the ultimate movie star. The embodiment of romantic masculinity in American film throughout the ‘50s and ‘60s, Hudson reigned supreme as the king of Hollywood. The icon worshipped by moviegoers and beloved by his colleagues appeared to have it all. Yet beneath the suave and commanding star persona, there was an insecure, deeply conflicted, and all too vulnerable human being. In this more conservative era, Hudson’s wholesome, straight arrow screen image was at odds with his closeted homosexuality.
