Day's Straight-Jacket lampoons the life of Hudson, whose cover was only blown years later, when he was diagnosed with AIDS. The film stars Matt Lescher, formerly of NBC's Good Morning, Miami, as Guy Stone, a silver screen star touted as America's most eligible bachelor. When his secret begins to compromise his future in the film biz, Guy's agent suggests he do what many golden era Hollywood actors were forced to do, grow a beard. Guy marries a dim-witted, starry-eyed studio secretary and stumbles through straight life, until he meets a man who just might be the love that he didn't know existed. Straight-Jacket plays like over-the-top fun, but it has a real and poignant message in these days of conservative government policy, when for an apparent majority of Americans the 1950s in retrospect look like an ideal decade.
