Rock Hudson, a 1950's classic movie star, is described as a young Rhett Butler. His acting roles touch several generations of movie goers, starting in his first movie Fighter Squadron (1949). Rock Hudson's movie roles range from Westerns, teary Dramas to Comedies. His best known movie is Pillow Talk (1959), with Doris Day as his leading lady, one of the best all time comedies. This role in Pillow Talk adds a new comedic dimension in his acting, and boosts him into the most popular leading man and the top man of movie box office - 1960, 1961, and 1962. Rock Hudson goes on to act in other movie comedies with success. The biography below of Rock Hudson includes an early bio and a list of Rock Hudson movies.

Rock Hudson biography / bio:

In 1931 at six years old - a very sensitive six - Roy is deeply hurt when his parents separate. The years between 7 and 10 are tough, hard years for Roy. Roy's mother works as a waitress, and whatever other work she can find. Roy takes a paper route and works afterschool carrying packages at the neighborhood grocery store. Roy's mother loses her job, and Roy and mother move in with Roy's grandmother. Roy joins the Navy and says he enjoys crisscrossing the Pacific, enjoying the spectacular sunsets and the nights he sleeps on deck with the stars up above. When he gets out of the Navy, he goes out West with his mother. He takes a job as mailman - besides delivering mail he also collects coffee and doughnuts. He gets a job driving a truck - sharing quarters in a small hotel with three other truckers. He gets noticed because of his good looks and is placed in his first movie, Fighter Squadron, although non-credited. His named is changed to Roc Hudson and then to Rock Hudson.
