An auction of Rock Hudson's estate includes everything from gifts from Liz Taylor to erotic art.



An Elizabeth Taylor engraved frame gifted to Rock Hudson
Pewter picture frame signed by Cartier featuring a heart shaped cutout with custom engraved inscription reading, "Private Lives 1983 / Darling Rock & Tom / Love Elizabeth." Taylor reportedly stayed with Rock Hudson in his New York apartment while rehearsing for the Broadway opening of Private Lives. The two had been friends since the filming of Giant in 1956, and Hudson's battle with AIDS was one of the factors that led to Taylor's personal involvement in fighting the disease.
