Movie Review: Tab Hunter Confidential
This documentary is based upon Tab Hunter's autobiography. In the book and in this documentary, he confirms the then long held rumors that he was gay. He had been in a relationship with Anthony Perkins, Ronnie Robertson, and his life partner Allan Glaser. The documentary traces the forces in play in the 1950s in the context of the Hollywood movie industry and how they played out in the life of a gay man. The story is as much about Tab Hunter as the society he lived in and gives us the retrospective account of life as a closet gay 1950s heart throb.
