"THE SECRET LIFE OF ROCK HUDSON Rock Hudson was one of the last great romantic screen idols, adored by more than a generation of movie-goers. But in 1985, the carefully cultivated image of a lifetime was shattered by the news that he was a life-long homosexual, dying slowly form AIDS. For many people, it was the first time the disease had taken on a human dimension and it helped to dispel more then five years of public ignorance. Nearly four years after his death, Hudson was the centre of the AIDS debate again, when an ex-lover took the film star's estate to court on the grounds that Hudson had slept with him without telling him he had AIDS. CAST OF CHARACTERS: Rock Hudson; Marc Christian, Hudson's lover; Mark Miller, Hudson's personal assistant; Elizabeth Taylor, actress; Marvin Mitchelson, Christian's attorney. How One Man's Tragic death and his lover's accusations awoke the world to the horror of AIDS." Includes interview with Rock's ex-wife, Phyllis Gates.Binding: Paperback
