Tab Hunter Confidential
In the 1950s, Tab Hunter is number one at the box office and number one on the music charts. He is Hollywood’s most sought-after star and America’s boy next door. Natalie Wood, Debbie Reynolds and Sophia Loren are just a few of the actresses he is romantically linked to. Nothing, it seems, can damage Tab Hunter’s career. Nothing, that is, except for the fact that Hunter is secretly gay.
Director Jeffrey Schwarz (Vito / I Am Divine) has made yet another documentary gem, making you fall in love with his subject whether you are familiar with the story or not.
Here, we meet the real Tab Hunter as he openly share stories from his life in Hollywood’s golden era, career ups and downs, the film studio’s power, secret love affairs, and to the quiet life he enjoys with his husband today.
Jeffrey Schwarz is an Emmy Award-winning producer / director filmmaker based in LA. His previous documentaries include I Am Divine; HBO Documentary Films' Vito; Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon (all previously screened in Oslo), and Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story.
