In the 1950s, Tab Hunter shot from stable boy to the biggest star in the Warner Brothers galaxy, with teen-heartthrob recording star tossed in for fun. He was the masculine ideal of the age: blond haired, blue-eyed, and heart-stoppingly gorgeous. Defined by his All American good looks and surrounded by a Hollywood and country that openly persecuted gays, Tab Hunter walked a tightrope through most of his career. And now it can be told. Get ready boys (and girls) for your dream date with Tab Hunter! With unaffected charm and grace, Tab (who still looks wonderful) tells the story he hasn't really wanted to tell. He candidly discusses his family, his personal demons, and yes, his secret Hollywood romances. Like the man, this film is a total class act. With a star-studded cast of guest commentators and enough glorious vintage film clips to satisfy any film fanatic, this witty and exuberant film tells it all with style to burn. Can you resist a date with Tab? – C.R.
