    Rock Hudson

    Rock Hudson

    You’ve seen Rock Hudson play cowboys, lovers, fighters, heroes. Always so wholesome. Always beating the bad guys. And always getting the girl. But his greatest role of all? That’s been Rock Hudson, all along. Because it’s all an act. And it all has to come crashing down at some point…

    Edie Sedgwick

    Edie Sedgwick

    Edie Sedgwick’s the original it girl. The first to be famous for fame’s own sake. And an image that will forever live on. Her act doesn’t end when the reels stopped rolling. It can’t. Because that’s what makes her. But it’s what breaks her too…
