70s Rewind: Rock Hudson's EMBRYO In Posters And Pics

Rock Hudson was in the midst of a successful multi-season run as the lead in television series McMillan and Wife when his co-star Susan St. James left the show. Perhaps sensing the writing on the wall -- the show would last only one more season -- Hudson took the starring role in 1976's Embryo, a thriller with science fiction and horror elements.

Click through the picture below to read more about the movie and see all the images in the gallery.

Directed by journeyman Ralph Nelson (Lillies of the Field, Charly), Embryo features Hudson in downbeat mode as a scientist who conducts an amazingly successful experiment on a canine fetus -- resulting in accelerated growth -- and then tries it on a human fetus.

I was kind of obsessed with this flick when I was a kid. I don't know how 'Embryo' got a PG rating because it had (to my 11/12 year-old brain) a lot of nudity but, because it wasn't an R, HBO would play it during the day (before my parents got home from work!).

In the 70s, the MPAA doesn't seem to have been as strict with brief nudity. Around the same time as EMBRYO, for example, LOGAN'S RUN and THE LITTLE GIRL WHO LIVES DOWN THE LANE also had brief, er, upper frontal nudity from ladies, earning PG ratings that they would probably not receive today.

Both LOGAN'S RUN and THE LITTLE GIRL WHO LIVES DOWN THE LANE also had brief, er, lack of briefs.
