The 25 Year Old Rock Hudson
14 March 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

He was definitely eye candy in this film with some merit in the story. In the 50's he was a younger version of Cary Grant with his tall, dark looks, and should have been used by Hitchcock in the 50's rather than the 60's. His single breasted suits and thin ties were interesting to look at, and I guess by today's standards that it would be trendy if it was worn today.
