Inhalt
Rock Hudson and Henry Willson. In Hollywood's inner circles, the two men epitomized the quintessential powerbroker and the impressionable yet ambitious young man who would do anything to fulfill his dream. This controversial, legendary friendship took Roy Fitzgerald from lowly truck driver to star of »Giant«, and »Pillow Talk«. From 1957 to 1965, Hudson reigned as the most popular movie star of his time. But the price for such glory was one that Henry Willson, a gay man and Hollywood's most »notorious« starmaker, brokered repeatedly in the years he masterminded Hudson's career and kept the star's name out of the scandal sheets. This book chronicles Willson's maneuvers to sidestep the FBI's investigation into Hudson's homosexuality, the use of off-duty LAPD cops and Mob ties to intimidate Hudson's blackmailers, the »arranged« marriage with Phyllis Gates, and Hudson's affair with a Universal Pictures vice-presidents to help secure future starring roles.
