Storyline

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 his skyrocketing career. Nothing, that is, except for the fact that Tab Hunter is secretly gay. Now, Tab Hunter's secret is out. In TAB HUNTER CONFIDENTIAL we will meet, for the first time, the real Tab Hunter as he shares with us the whole story of a happy, healthy survivor of Hollywood's roller coaster.

One of the best films at SXSW
29 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

A fascinating look at a Hollywood that no longer exists through the eyes of one of it's biggest stars. For those who have only heard the name Tab Hunter and know nothing of his career you're in for a treat. Tab shares a sincere, open and honest look at his life from the heights of stardom to the darkest days of loosing a beloved brother, mother and a career.

This film weaves through the life and times of a celebrity you truly like getting to know. With candor and grace Tab generously shares with us his most meaningful relationships and how they impacted not only his private, but his very public life and career.

Tab, with great humility takes us on journey through an extraordinary life that very few have or ever will experience. It was a pleasure getting to know him. Bittersweet and unexpectedly emotional on so many levels.
