 Richard Barrios, Screened Out: Playing Gay in Hollywood from Edison to Stonewall (2003), page 277: "supervising a series of laminated comedies and soap operas in which his own closeted gay sexuality seemed to be expressed through an exhaustive obsession with tactile glamour." Also Norman Jewison, This Terrible Business Has Been Good to Me (2005), page 78: "Ross was gay, and he and the man he lived with, a businessman named Jack Mapes, were two of the most elegant guys in town. They threw bridge parties. People would kill to get an invitation to those parties. Not me -- I didn't play cards much -- but Rock Hudson and Claire Trevor were regulars."
Boyfriend: Jack Mapes
