Tab Hunter Confidential
Sponsored by Christy Bergland
Jeffrey Schwarz, 2015, USA, 90 min
In the 1950s, Tab Hunter was number one at the box office and number one on the music charts. He was Hollywood’s most sought-after star and America’s boy next door. Natalie Wood, Debbie Reynolds and Sophia Loren were just a few of the actresses he was romantically linked to. Nothing, it seemed, could damage Tab Hunter’s career. Nothing,that is, except for the fact that Tab Hunter is secretly gay. Now, Tab Hunter’s secret is out. Direct from its World Premiere at SXSW, we meet the real Tab Hunter in this superb documentary, as he shares the whole story of his life as a happy, healthy survivor of Hollywood’s roller coaster. Interviews with the likes of John Waters, Clint Eastwood, George Takei, Debbie Reynolds, Robert Wagner, and Portia de Rossi, this film entertains as slickly as it informs our notions of queer social history. 8:45pm. Advanced: $10, $8 members, Door: $12
This screening will be hosted by Dr. Kate Drabinskiis a Lecturer of Gender and Women’s Studies, and she is also the Director of the Women Involved in Learning and Leadership (WILL) program, a co-curricular program and Living-Learning community sponsored by GWST.
