  • A product of Hollywood's golden age, Tab Hunter became Hollywood's golden boy. His first starring role, at the tender age of 19, was opposite Linda Darnell in the romantic South Seas adventure Island of Desire. An instant success, Tab went on to star in over 40 major motion pictures, including Battle Cry, The Pleasure of His Company, That Kind of Woman, Gunman's Walk, They Came to Cordura, Ride the Wild Surf, The Loved One, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean, and the Academy Award-nominated Damn Yankees. A few of Tab's leading ladies include Sophia Loren, Natalie Wood, Gwen Verdon, Rita Hayworth, Lana Turner, Debbie Reynolds and Kim Basinger. Multi-talented Tab also enjoyed a very successful recording career that culminated with one of the top records of the rock and roll era. His recording of Young Love zoomed to number one on the charts worldwide (knocking Elvis out of the top spot) where it remained for six weeks. Tab subsequently starred in his own television series for NBC, was nominated for an Emmy for his performance opposite Geraldine Page in Playhouse 90's Portrait of a Murderer and has guest starred in dozens of television shows. He also appeared on Broadway with Tallulah Bankhead in Tennessee Williams's The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore. Tab's film career took off once again in the 1980s/90s as he starred in such films as John Waters' Polyester, Grease 2, and the cult comedy-Western Lust in the Dust. His autobiography TAB HUNTER CONFIDENTIAL became a New York Times best seller and was made into a critically acclaimed documentary feature film in 2015.
