Tab Hunter confidential : the making of a movie star

Image of item

1st ed.

He became a #1 box office attraction, recorded a #1 hit song, and survived a major sex scandal--all by the time he was 25. Five years later, new stars had been developed, and Tab Hunter found himself scrambling to find work, struggling just to survive. Yet survive he did, re-creating himself as a cult star and film producer in a career that spans five decades and more than fifty films. This book tells what it felt like to be created, packaged, and sold to the American public; to appear on-screen, off-screen, and on every newsstand in America with the biggest leading ladies of the day, while dealing with the reality of being gay in a time when the word didn't exist. It's his story of how he kept his bearings when he was suddenly no longer under the protective wing of the Warner Bros. publicity department, no longer in demand as a "star."--From publisher description.
