I would go out occasionally

to a cockail party,

and I was fascinated by

all of what I saw there.

There were a few guys

dancing with a few guys,

a couple of gals dancing

with a couple gals.

It was just a party,

and people were

dancing and having a good time.

Paries like this were illegal.

And the nex think I

know the cops came in.

Doors burst open,

there they were.

They were arresting

a bunch of queers.

They took us down to

the police station.

I thought, oh, my

god, this is terrible.

I thought, what would my mother

think of my being arrested?

Will it affect this career

that I'm trying to get

stared in the motion pictures?

An attorney, Harry

Weiss, appeared.

He was well known

for taking care

of situations like that with

many, many Hollywood people.

And he said, you've got to be

a lot sharper than you are.

You're in Hollywood now.

You want to be an actor and

really laid down the law to me.

And then I was released.

I had no idea it was

going to jump up and be

thrown at me years later.

He's the young fellow

you've been waiting for,

ladies and gentlemen,

Tab Hunter.

Six feet of

rugged manhood can

stir the hear of every woman.

Oh, my goodness,

I'm fabbergasted!

Tab Hunter.

How do you shave, Tab'?

With Gillette Super

Speed of course.

Tab Hunter!

You tell me where I

can fne Tab Hunter.

Well, you do pretty good.

Gee, thanks.

What do you like

about Tab Hunter?


quite a few things.

That clean

cut, unaffected Tab Hunter.



All-American boy.

Shocking, but true story of

a young man who found himself

overwhelmed by a

strange compulsion.

Hello, I'm Tab Hunter,

and I've got a secret.

Well, I would never have

talked about my personal life

in the 1950s.

Something the matter, kid?


Oh, no.

No, not a thing.

I obviously

was very closeted.

And I'm sure it's a

very diffcult thing

to think, what's the problem?

But there was a problem.

It's been very diffcult

for me my whole life

talking about that side of me.

For me to come out

of myself like this

and to share all of this

is exremely diffcult.

I've never been as

open as I am with you

because it's been written

about and what the heck?

You know, I'm an old man.

You know, this my

life-- big deal.


When I count three, will all

of the ladies in the audience

please go, (SIGHING).

Tab, when I was young,

when I frst saw him,

looked-- beside acting, he

just was amazing looking.

Whoa, this was like a

fying saucer landed looking

like that cute-- beautiful,

California surfer,

handsome that every single girl

or boy wanted to make out with.

Are you Tab Hunter'?

Uh, yeah-- yeah.

I think I've died

and gone to heaven.

Kids and the fans

just gravitated to him

just like a magnet.

He was so popular, and so many

people just thought he was it.

And he was.

(LAUGHING) I'll bet.

He was as big as

they could come.

He had the star quality

and he had the x-factor.

Mr. Tab Hunter- Tab.

And in every picture they

managed to take his shir off.


Hey, kid!

Nobody could take their

eyes off Tab Hunter.

He was the All-American boy, and

nobody sold that image better.

He was the good-looking

sailor, or he

was the good-looking Marine,

and he was the good-looking Air

Force pilot.

I did so many

military flms that I

was waiting for the government

to send me a pension.

I mean, my gosh, I was

in uniform all the time.


I saw him in "Battle Cry."

He played a young Marine

with Dorothy Malone.
