Morning Man Classic: Rock Hudson!
Rock Hudson was born 94 years ago today.
He starred in nearly 70 films during his career including Pillow Talk, Giant, Written on the Wind, Magnificent Obsession, A Farewell to Arms, Come September and Send Me No Flowers.
Through it all, he was a closeted gay man.
It’s a pity he had to live his life this way and that all these years later, Hollywood’s romantic leading men are still living this way.
But what a career Hudson had during his peak in the 50s and 60s – including his several comedies with Doris Day - then in television in the 70s with the long-running series McMillan and Wife.
His death of complications from AIDS in 1985 – he was just 59 – gave a public face to the terrible disease.
