Tab Hunter Confidential

​På 1950-tallet var Tab Hunter på toppen av karrieren med både filmer og sanger øverst på listene. En landsens gutt som over natten ble Hollywoods mest ettertraktede stjerne og Amerikas yndling. Han ble koblet til andre stjerner som Natalie Wood, Debbie Reynolds og Sophia Loren, og ingenting så ut til å kunne lage en ripe i karrieren hans.

Ingenting, bortsett fra det faktum at Tab Hunter var homofil.

I dette inngående portrettet forteller Hunter åpent om sitt liv i Hollywoods maskineri - om karrierens oppturer og nedturer, filmstudioets makt, skjulte kjærlighetsforhold med andre stjerner, samt det tilbaketrukne livet han lever i dag. 

Regissør Jeffrey Schwarz (Vito, I Am Divine, tidl. vist på Skeive Filmer) vant Hunters tillit, og har atter laget en film hvor man blir glad i subjektet enten man kjenner ham fra før eller ei.

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.
