Rock Hudson (born Roy Harold Scherer Jr.; November 17, 1925 – October 2, 1985) was an American actor, who, according to TCM.com’s biography “epitomized Hollywood's classic matinee idol image...One of the most popular movie stars of his time, Hudson's screen career spanned five decades and was a shining example of Hollywood's classical "star system"-style career promotion ...” A prominent heartthrob of the Hollywood Golden Age, he achieved stardom with his role in Magnificent Obsession (1954), followed by All That Heaven Allows (1955), director Douglas Sirk’s self-described effort to re-create the success of Magnificent Obsession, and Giant (1956), for which he received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor. Hudson also found continued success with a string of romantic comedies co-starring Doris Day: Pillow Talk (1959), Lover Come Back (1961), and Send Me No Flowers (1964). During the late 1960s, his films included Seconds (1966), Tobruk (1967), and Ice Station Zebra (1968). Unhappy with the film scripts he was offered, Hudson turned to television and was a hit starring in the popular mystery series McMillan & Wife (1971-1977). His last role was as a guest star on the fifth season (1984-1985) of the primetime ABC soap opera Dynasty, until the ravages of AIDS-related illness made it impossible for him to continue.

I don't see James Dean in the list. He should be in there.

ChewSep 19, 2010

these actress and actors are wrong. He never dated Jim Neighbors. The story behind them no pun intented was that his friends sent out a wedding invite for a false party. The invite said to join the two in marriage making rock`s name rock pile ha ha. Rock said that women were unclean and he dated many more men than women

wraparoundMay 14, 2010

Is there any truth to the rumor that Rock Hudson and Lolly Vegas (lead singer and guitarist for the group Redbone - Come and et Your Love, Witch Queen of New Orleans)were especially close in the mid-70`s?

cwm368Dec 28, 2009

Those relations with women were fabricated, hope you all know that.

ROCK HUDSON was a top star of the 50s/60s/70s.His best film LAST SUNSET made in 1961 with CAROL LYNLEY and Kirk Douglas A romantic hero on screen but a very sad figure after 1966 in a horrid private life.

LouiseApr 19, 2008
