2015 QFest: Tab Hunter Confidential
In the 1950s, Tab Hunter was No. 1 at the movie box office and on the music charts. He was Hollywood’s most sought-after star, romantically linked to Sophia Loren, Debbie Reynolds, and Natalie Wood. Nothing, it seemed, could stop Hunter’s career - except that he was secretly gay.
Tab Hunter Confidential delivers a revealing look into Hunter's life, from his rise in Hollywood to the outing that nearly destroyed his career. Struggling to remain relevant in a studio system on the verge of collapse, Hunter made a triumphant comeback with the help of drag queen Divine and found his life partner, Allan Glaser. Sharing freely without regrets, Award-winning filmmaker Jeffrey Schwartz (I Am Divine; Vito) uncovers the story of a man who survived Hollywood’s infamous roller coaster and endured to find love and happiness.
