Hudson and Prentiss spell comedy gold!

  • Mar 1, 2008
Following some successful romantic comedy teamings with Doris Day ("Pillow Talk", "Lover Come Back") and Gina Lollobrigida ("Come September"), Rock Hudson found another delightful leading lady in Paula Prentiss. MAN'S FAVORITE SPORT? teams them with legendary screwball comedy director Howard Hawks.

MAN'S FAVORITE SPORT? recounts the adventures of angling 'expert' Roger Willoughby (Rock Hudson) who is invited to take part in a prestigious fishing tournament. However, Roger can't even throw a line, let alone catch a fish! When press agent Abigail Page (the delightful Paula Prentiss) finds out about Roger's problem, she decides to give him the ultimate crash course in fishing...

Initially, director Howard Hawks wanted to fashion this movie as a semi-remake of his 1938 classic "Bringing Up Baby", to the point where he even approached Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn about starring in it!

The film features a great musical score by Henry Mancini as well as fine supporting performances from Maria Perschy and Charlene Holt. The DVD includes the trailer. (Single-sided, dual-layer disc).
