Worshiped by moviegoers and beloved by his colleagues, Hudson appeared to have it all. He grew up poor in Winnetka, Illinois; was abandoned by his biological father, abused by an alcoholic stepfather, and controlled by his domineering mother.

In 1985 the public learned that the actor was battling AIDS. Griffin draws on interviews with co-stars, family members and former companions to create a complete and nuanced portrait of one of the most fascinating stars in cinema history. -- adapted from information provided.
