The 28 Year Old Rock Hudson
3 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film is set in the Canadian north. 'The Hollywood Reporter' described it as a somewhat placid yarn on the 22nd September 1953. 'Variety' deemed it okay on the 23rd September 1953, but its box office potential was doubtful. I agree.
