While attending Valley College, American actor John David Carson was appropriately cast as a university student in the bizarre Rock Hudson comedy Pretty Maids All in a Row. The cherub-faced Carson was perfect for the role of the sexual naif who is advised in the ways of women by worldly teacher Hudson. Since many of the nubile coeds in this film cavorted about in the nude, young Carson found himself featured in the middle of a Playboy magazine spread. Pretty Maids, and a 1974 assignment as George C. Scott's son in The Savage is Loose, represented the apex of Carson's film career, most of which was spent in supporting roles in such efforts as Day of the Dolphin (1973), Stay Hungry (1976) and Empire of the Ants (1977). In 1987, John David Carson was seen as Jay Spence on the TV series Falcon Crest. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
