Gonna' Comb That Girl Right Out Of My Hair...
Shown in a very staged publicity shot, actor Rock Hudson and wife Phyllis Gates "share" the morning paper and a bit of breakfast. Gates was a secretary to Rock's Hollywood agent, Henry Willson, shown here dancing with Shirley Temple in 1945:
Some say Phyllis entered the marriage with full knowledge that it was only an attempt to keep the gay rumors about Rock at bay, while others (including Phyllis herself) claim that she was truly in love with him. The marriage was brief (less than 3 years), and neither was ever married again.
Another vintage shot of Rock, admiring himself in the mirror while he combs his hair:
