Cat. #0015512: ROCK HUDSON

Quite scarce vintage deckle-edge 3.5 x 5.5-inch black and white postcard portrait dating to the 1950s, boldly signed in later years in blue felt-tip pen. In very fine condition. iWhile the star employed secretaries to sign his heaps of fan mail, this example is incontrovertibly the real McCoy. Nicknamed "Mr. Beefcake", improbably good-looking Rock Hudson earned an Oscar nod for Giant in 1956, and was also memorable in Magnificent Obsession (1954), All That Heaven Allows (1955), Written on a Wind (1956), A Farewell to Arms (1957), Pillow Talk (1959), Come September (1961), Lover Come Back (1961), Send Me No Flowers (1964), and McMilland & Wife (1971). He died tragically of A.I.D.S. in 1985, aged only 59 years.
