Storyline

A young Midwesterner transforms from a shy kid into a sex symbol with rugged good looks, but he is forced to keep secret his homosexuality. Henry Willson, an agent, discovers Hudson and beyond changing the actor's name, Willson becomes adept at keeping secrets. When the showbiz tabloid "Confidential" threatens to publish rumors that Hudson is leading a secret life in 1955, Willson arranges for Hudson to marry his secretary, Phyllis Gates. They do a good job of keeping Hudson’s private life private right up until he dies in 1985, when he becomes the first major movie star to pass away from complications relating to AIDS.
