George Nader

Hunky gay actor most prolific in the '50s and '60s. George and his lover were very close friend to Rock Hudson, and Rock left George the interest to his estate after his death. After a car accident left him with eye damage, George was unable to continue his acting career and became a writer. Has anyone read his 1978 sci-fi book "Chrome" about a futuristic gay love affair?

When Confidential magazine was going to out Rock, the studio made a deal. They offered-up George for the article.

Nader was one hot hunk of man with a nice build and perfect hairy chest.

He looked good in and out of clothes.

George was absolutely gorgeous--great body, great chest hair, handsome face.

I've never seen a movie he was in except "Robot Monster," though.

Wouldn't it have been great to be sandwiched between George Nader and Steve Cochran?

I hate him since he handed the election to GW Bush

He was offered up as a "sacrifice" to Confidential magazine so that Rock Hudson wasn't outed. It was a horrible, horrible trade-off and ruined Nader's chances for stardom. I think both Nader and Hudson were Henry Wilson discoveries? Anyway, Nader did many B movies and TV shows back in the day, including a memorable turn on the Andy Griffith Show as Ellie the druggist' brother who comes to Mayberry to visit and Andy and Barney mistake him for her suitor, thereby making Andy jealous.

His partner was Rock Hudson's longtime secretary, and they were pretty much Rock's family.

But what was the results of his being "offered up" to Confidential? What does that even mean?

Did Confidential out him as gay? Didn't George's acting career continue well into the 1960s?

Clearly, I don't get quite what happened!

He looked like a butcher version of Farley Granger.

R1, R9, George Nader denied that this ever happened. When People magazine printed that story after Hudson's death, George contacted them and told them that Confidential never printed such an article, and that he was never sacrificed by Universal to save Rock's career. George was a second-tier actor who headlined B movies throughout the '50s. His film career never really took off beyond those crap films, so he left Universal in 1958, did a couple of television series, then headed to Germany where he became a big film star. In fact, he was the second most popular film star in Germany in the 1960s, after fellow American Lex Barker. It's doubtful that this would've happened had the Germans been aware of Nader's homosexuality.
