All That Heaven Allows: A Tribute to Rock Hudson 

Iconic.  Legendary.  Timeless.  Rock Hudson was the ultimate movie star and this documentary pays tribute to the matinee idol who was the embodiment of romantic masculinity in American film in the 1950’s and 1960’s.  As an Oscar-nominated leading man, Hudson won acclaim for his performances in glossy melodramas (Magnificent Obsession), western epics (Giant) and blockbuster bedroom farces (Pillow Talk, Lover Come Back).  In the 70’s and 80’s, Hudson successfully transitioned to television; his long-running series McMillan & Wife and a recurring role on Dynasty introduced him to a whole new generation of fans. 

This documentary celebrates Hudson’s achievements on film, stage and television.  In addition to classic film clips, this tribute features interviews with many of Hudson’s co-stars, including Carol Burnett, Doris Day, Claudia Cardinale, Piper Laurie, Jack Scalia, Linda Evans, John Schuck and Jane Withers.  Also providing commentary are film historians Robert Osborne, David Thomson, Illeana Douglas, Thomas Santopietro and Kevin Thomas.

Produced by Mark Griffin (author of All That Heaven Allows: A Biography of Rock Hudson) and edited by Heidi Perkins.
