Summary
Worshiped by moviegoers and beloved by his colleagues, Hudson appeared to have it all. He grew up poor in Winnetka, Illinois; was abandoned by his biological father, abused by an alcoholic stepfather, and controlled by his domineering mother. After signing with the powerful but predatory agent Henry Willson, Hudson was transformed, gaining a wholesome, straight arrow screen image was at odds with his closeted homosexuality. In 1985 the public learned that the actor was battling AIDS. Griffin draws on interviews with co-stars, family members and former companions to create a complete and nuanced portrait of one of the most fascinating stars in cinema history
