CGiii Comment

An Oscar-winning screenplay....a very bad year.

There are a few homophobic lines that come from Hudson...he must have been screaming inside.

Alcoholism is presented as cute and funny...

A woman living alone with a successful job can never be happy without a man in her life - it really was a crappy year for film.

Rock Hudson is a gay man, playing a straight man, pretending to be gay - how fucking insulting to himself and the audience.

Vile, contemptible Hollywood.

Sugar-sickening puritanical crap.

The(ir) Blurb...

In New York, the interior decorator Jan Morrow and the wolf composer Brad Allen share a party line, but Brad keeps it busy most of the time flirting with his girlfriends. They do not know each other but Jan hates Brads since she needs the telephone for her business and can not use it. Coincidently Jan's wealthy client Jonathan Forbes that woos her is the best friend of Brad and he comments with him that he feels an unrequited love for Jan, who is a gorgeous woman. When Brad meets Jan by chance in a restaurant, he poses as a naive tourist from Texas named Rex Stetson and seduces her. But Jonathan hires a private eye to find who Rex Stetson is.
