The story of matinee idol Tab Hunter from teenage stable boy to closeted Hollywood star of the 1950s features Tab Hunter, John Waters, Clint Eastwood, Paul Newman, Portia de Rossi, George Takei, Debbie Reynolds, Robert Wagner, and dozens more!

In the 1950s, Tab Hunter was number one at the box office and number one on the music charts. He was
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 was romantically linked to. Nothing, it seemed, could damage
Tab Hunter’s career. Nothing, except for the fact that Tab Hunter was secretly gay.

Now Tab Hunter’s secret is out. In Tab Hunter Confidential - acclaimed by Vanity Fair as “a savvy, rollicking,
eye-popping film” - we meet the real Tab Hunter as he shares with us the whole story of a happy, healthy
survivor of Hollywood’s roller coaster. (USA, 2015, 90 min., Unrated, DCP | Dir. Jeffrey Schwarz)

“With that golden hair and torso, the scrubbed skin and the jaw that could open cans, Tab Hunter was a whole Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue rolled into one package - except this package had a secret compartment.” - The Washington Post
