Storyline

When Professor Brookfield and his pretty daughters Peggy and Susan move into the small town Pasadena in California, their new neighbor Mrs. Fielding immediately takes over control, helps them moving in, and urges the girls to participate in the annual Rose Bowl beauty pageant. Although they're not thrilled, they enter the competition. Meanwhile Mrs. Fielding's son Tom makes eyes at Peggy, unknowing that her heart already belongs to a famous football star. So she tries to redirect his interest to her sister Susan. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

The 25 Year Old Rock Hudson
14 March 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

He was definitely eye candy in this film with some merit in the story. In the 50's he was a younger version of Cary Grant with his tall, dark looks, and should have been used by Hitchcock in the 50's rather than the 60's. His single breasted suits and thin ties were interesting to look at, and I guess by today's standards that it would be trendy if it was worn today.
