In this exclusive clip from director Jeffrey Schwarz’s documentary “Tab Hunter Confidential,” interviewees reveal why Tab was such a popular commodity back in the 1950s. The film features interviews from Tab Hunter himself, as well as Debbie Reynolds, Robert Wagner, John Waters, George Takei, Clint Eastwood, and Portia De Rossi, among others.
The official synopsis reads: “In the 1950s, Tab Hunter is America’s Boy Next Door. 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.”
The film opens in Los Angeles on October 30 at Landmark Nuart Theater. Check out the exclusive clip above.
