Tab To Star In Auto-documentary

hunter_tabIn what might well turn out to be the most honest performance on his long film resume, Tab Hunter (pictured) has agreed to star in a film documentary that will detail what it was like to live a lie. Hunter, a gay man, kept his private life hidden so he could be sold as a heterosexual matinee idol in the 1950s. According to Variety, “Tab Hunter Condential,” a documentary named after the 2005 autobiography in which Hunter first came clean, is being shopped for distribution. Hunter has agreed to provide a first-hand glimpse into what it was like to transform overnight from a stable boy to Hollywood contract player at Warner Bros., during a time when studios excelled in presenting a carefully choreographed image of stars to the public.
