Personal Quote:

The star thing is over. I've knocked around quite a bit in the past few years and now I'm just another actor looking for work. Acting is what I know and what I do best...I'm trying to find a new niche...something to help erase that bland image the studios gave me in the Fifties. I'm looking for roles that will establish me as a more mature actor. - in a 1971 interview See more »

Hunter and his companion Allan Glaser met in 1983. The couple co-produced the films Lust in the Dust (1985) and Dark Horse (1992). See more »
