A Youtube poster named soapbox posted these delightful home movies by Roddy McDowall of summer parties hosted by McDowall and Rock Hudson almost 50 years ago. They are silent, but in the silence we travel back to a time where very famous Hollywood actors did not travel with an entire entourage. These were casual gatherings of some of the most famous people in the world, many of them like Hudson, McDowall and other guests were gay. Many of them, like Jane Fonda, Paul Newman, and Ben Gazzara were some of the most beautiful stars of the then current screen. Enjoy these rare moments captured on film and don't forget, we use sun block now
