"All That Heaven Allows: A Tribute to Rock Hudson" - A Rock Hudson Documentary

Iconic. Legendary. Timeless. Rock Hudson was the ultimate movie star and this documentary pays tribute to the matinee idol who embodied romantic masculinity in American film in the 1950s and 60s. $15 (1.5 hrs)

Full Details

Quintessentially tall, dark, and handsome, legendary movie star Rock Hudson epitomized all-American manhood at the pinnacle of his fame. The country’s favorite leading man in the ’50s and ’60s, he oozed charm, strength, virility, and charisma in classics like Magnificent ObsessionGiant, and Pillow Talk. His mainstream appeal translated into box office success during the last hurrah of Hollywood’s Golden Age. In the 70s and 80s, 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.

Following the film will be a conversation and Q+A and a book signing with producer Mark Griffin, author of the recently published All That Heaven Allows: A Biography of Rock Hudson (HarperCollins, December 2018).
