A peak into fifties' Hollywood with its constructed careers, insincere morals and studio system dependence often at the cost of one's own identity. Tab Hunter, the former heart-throb, guides us through his past from studio darling to unemployable then from rediscovered to self imposed exile with the major igniter being his homosexuality. A puff piece in some ways but a worthwhile watch.
Lovely and charming biopic about a bygone heartthrob from 50s American movies. Great interviews from John Waters, Lainie Kazan, and many more who worked with him over the course of career, and turns into a fascinating look into Hollywood in the studio era.
