From legendary Hollywood director Howard Hawks, Man’s Favorite Sport? features Rock Hudson and Paula Prentiss in a hilarious fish-out-of-water tale. The Film Daily applauded as simply “delightful.” Roger Willoughby (Hudson) is happily employed as one of the world’s great angling experts. Unfortunately, even his own boss doesn’t know that Roger has never been fishing in his life. So when press agent Abigail Page (Prentiss) arranges for Roger to participate in her resort’s upcoming fishing tournament, he’s thrown into a panic. At the resort, he and Abby commence a crash course to turn him into a genuine outdoorsman – only to have their plan riotously upset by a surprise visit from Roger’s fiancee. With a sparkling score by composer Henry Mancini, Man’s Favorite Sport? is a comedy classic you’ll fall for hook, line and sinker!
