Roy and Kenneth met in the Summer of 1947, together they left Long Beach and moved to Hollywood where they shared a bungalow in the hills.  Kenneth worked his contacts and threw parties to introduce his protege.  At one of these, Roy met [[Henry Willson]].  Without Ken's knowledge, Roy contacted Willson, they signed a contract and Willson became his agent.  A short time later, Kenneth moved back to Long Beach, alone.  Davidson reports that "..Roy's first check, made out to "Roy FitzGerald" from Vanguard Films of Culver City is endorsed on the back "Roy FitzGerald, Pay to the Order of Rock Hudson, Kenneth G Hodge"
