Favorite Actors of the 50’s ~ Rock Hudson ~ #3

19 Apr

Giant. That was Rock Hudson. It was also the first film I recall seeing him in. Personally I didn’t like all the romantic comedy he starred in with Doris Day, but movies like, Giant, Magnificent Obsession, Never Say Goodbye, those were the movies I loved Rock in.

A huge name in the 50’s, Rock was a handsome, daring, rugged man’s man. Now we know underneath that rough manly exterior laid a raw, emotional battle against society and even Hollywood. Rock was one of the best talents of the fifties, but very overlooked and under-appreciated. Nominated only once for an Oscar in his role of Bick Benedict in Edna Furber’s movie rendition of Giant, Rock Hudson captured the screen in a way only Rock could.
