Tab Hunter Confidential

In the 1950s, Tab Hunter was America’s boy next door. Nothing, it seemed, could damage his skyrocketing career. Nothing, that is, but the fact that Tab Hunter was secretly gay. Now, Tab Hunter’s secret is out. In this documentary we will meet for the first time, the real Tab Hunter as he shares with us the whole story of a happy and healthy survivor of Hollywood’s roller coaster.

My Thoughts


Tab Hunter Confidential is a documentary about Tab Hunter an Actor who was well liked not just for his acting but his Good Looks. A Hart Throb who has a Secret and explains why he was a hard to get male when women where chasing. He has a Secret, Tab Hunter was secretly gay.

The Docu Runs telling Tab Hunters child hood to his start in the Movie Biz down to his Music career. In between we learn That this Guy who now is a big star knocking Elvis of the charts and staring in big WB movies that he is living a life that is a Secret. He was gay but he has a strong wall of hiding his feelings in a time when Being Gay was illegal and can ruin a career. Something I would have loved to hear was When did he know and how he felt at the time. Also Would of loved to hear more about his brother and how he felt about Tabs there faces in public view.

Overall the docu was a good watch as Learned a lot about an Actor I’ve never heard of. Its pretty intriguing to see as you learn that this Guy who was like the Justin Bieber of the 50’s turns out to be gay. Filled with a good bit of Tab Hunters life story with Tab being the main interviewer telling his story here in this Docu. Give this a shot, check it out.

With that Said I Give Tab Hunter Confidential a 4 out of 5.

Note: I Know my speakers are way outdated. OPPO Blu-Ray Player is one of the best around and used in most home theaters. The Receiver is pretty good but on the line of out dated. Subwoofer is good with tons of bass but not the theater quality from a $400 Sub. Front speakers are fun with tons of power and are good for standalone’s but higher end sound (Hz) is lower quality. Overall I need to update on all speakers granted I do get decent sound out of them just the higher end falls short.


About Masked Avenger

CEO/Webmaster of The Name Is James and I love Film ranging from Silent 20's to highly CGI Blockbusters of today. Westerns, Horror, world film, basically anything that peaks my interest I own it But Asian Films are what I Prize the most and Half of My collection Consists of Asian Films. Thanks to the Film 5 Deadly Venoms

I Hail From The US, Maryland Is where The Ninja Studies and views the Scrolls of Film That Shine on his 46" Screen. I own a sword, I can do a thousand upside down situps, and I randomly disappear in smoke when I'm not writing movie news and or reviews.
