(ROCK HUDSON 1925-1985)

(PAPER DOLLS). Rock Hudson. Universal - International Star. 2 Cut-Outs.
Five pages of color cut-out outfits, including skin diver, boxer, frontiersman, and snazzy dinner club toggs (most from Hudson's movie roles). Large 4to, stapled color wrappers. Condition is near fine with only very mild separation on some die-cut edges around outfits. Racine: Whitman Publishing, 1957.

Hudson's public persona as a heterosexual cinema hunk was carefully maintained even as his gayness was an open secret in Hollywood. This publication would clearly appeal to both sides of the fan base.
