Sensational classic actor George Nader passes away

On February 4, 2002 George Nader (http://variety.com/2002/film/columns/nader-s-death-another-sad-finale-to-a-glamorous-h-w-d-life-1117860239/ ) who was quite a heartthrob passed away quietly in a nursing home. He was suffering from a bacterial infection which took a turn for the worse. He was admitted to the nursing room in September 2001 where his faculties soon stopped functioning and he was put on the ventilator system.

Nader (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/1384220/George-Nader.html ) was a happening actor from 50s to late 70s. He was among the few Hollywood actors who made a name for themselves internationally as well. There are many anecdotes from Nader’s life that will make any fan think that he was living a movie dream.

Nader was survived by his lifelong partner Mark Miller. Miller and Nader went back decades. Actually, Miller is the one who helped Nader start his career. Many don’t know that Miller did odd jobs so that Nader could make a name for himself in Hollywood. When Nader landed a contract with Universal studios, Miller was introduced to Hudson. Hudson hired Miller to be his secretary and later on bequeathed his estate to Nader and Miller together.

If you are a fan of classic movies then chances are that you have already come across George Nader in all his glory. He acted in many famous flicks like ‘Robot Monster’, ‘The Second Greatest Sex’, and ‘Four Bridges to Cross’ among other movies.

His good looks and deep set eyes were the reason why he became an instant hit with so many ladies of the time. Reports say that he wasn’t into eating any supplements but maintained his muscular frame by long swimming sessions and pumping iron. George Nader also liked to make statements. At a time when every actor would come on screen smooth skinned, Nader appeared with all his chest hair intact.

These small things are probably what made Nader so famous and loved by all. His ashes were scattered as per his wishes and a Cenotaph is erected in his memory.
