Storyline

Eric Farr speaks to the camera as if speaking Rock Hudson's words from a posthumous diary. Film clips from more than 30 Hudson films illustrate ways in which his sexual orientation played out on screen. First we see tenuous and unresolved relationships with women, then clips of Rock with men, cruising and circling. Next comes pedagogical Eros: Hudson with older men. We see Rock with his sidekicks, often Tony Randall. We look in depth at comedies of sexual embarrassment and innuendo: films in which Hudson sometimes plays two characters, "macho Rock and homo Rock." He's masculine yet vulnerable, a hunk who needs taking care of. Last come cinematic reflections on death. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

horrible, terrible, awful....
4 December 2011 | by ptb-8See all my reviews

This amateurish documentary is a hodge podge of Rock Hudson's life and films cruelly twisting context and clips to suit the tedious narration. Some weird person pretends to be Rock Hudson speaking from the grave and then misuses the clips sought to prove whatever it is the narration has him speak. It is an awful documentary with creepy a host and a mean spiritedness about it all. The misuse of clips is particularly annoying. The terrible quality of the clips makes it worse. This doco is a disgrace. The truly galling thing one is left with is the shoddiness of the source materials and the overall tone of sleaziness is appalling.
