Rock Hudson's home movie: This film-clip biography dissects the life and career of Rock Hudson in the light of his now uncovered homosexuality. Mark Rappaport's film is not just another hagiography of a 'gay icon'. Rather, through Rock and his screen persona, Rappaport uncovers the shifting values that have presided over the representation of sexual politics and masculinity over the last 40 years in mainstream media. Trapped in his big man image, Rock appears as the constant butt of gay-baiting jokes not so subtlely scattered throughout his films by producers and screenwriters.
