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.

Arthur Andrew Kelm Comes Out Of The Closet
26 November 2017 | by strong-122-478885See all my reviews

Are you seriously looking for the ultimate, Hollywood-celebrity "Coming Out" documentary?

Well - Believe me when I tell ya - "Tab Hunter: Confidential" is a true-life, tell-all tale that's not likely to disappoint.

Born Arthur Andrew Kelm in New York City (1931) - Tab Hunter (with his boyish good looks and sweet-as-apple-pie smile) was an almost immediate "heart-throb" sensation when (in 1950) he was first cast as Frank O'Brien in "The Lawless".

Through 100s of stills, excellent archival footage, and interviews, not only with Tab, himself (84 at the time), but also with those who worked around him, as well - This slick, informative, and very entertaining bio-documentary (impressively directed by Jeffrey Schwarz) is, without question, a sure-fire winner - Indeed - No ifs, ands, or buts about it.
