"Rock Hudson was the last machine-made movie star, and it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Audiences sensed Hudson's basic kindness and responded with a loyalty that never wavered despite his predominantly passive choices when it came to his career. Mark Griffin's All That Heaven Allows breaks new ground in its detailed and revelatory reporting on Hudson's private life and, most importantly, in empathy for its subject." -- Scott Eyman, author of John Wayne: Life and Legend and Hank and Jim
