It’s a testament to Tab Hunter’s popularity that just about every co-star he shared the bill with – including the reclusive likes of Clint Eastwood and Dolores Hart – agreed to appear in Jeffrey Schwarz’s absorbing documentary. His boy-next-door good looks helped to catapult the shy, California-raised teen to movie and recording stardom. Forgettable is the word best used to describe many of the features he starred in while under contract at Warners, but the success of Hunter’s "Young Love" for the rival Dot Records caused an angry Jack Warner to start a studio label of his own. Young women adored him, and so long as they continued to purchase tickets, the studio would do everything in its considerable power to fabricate and uphold his image. That included keeping their star’s closeted lifestyle out of the tabloids. At 84, no one is more self-effacingly bewildered by his continual fame than Hunter, an attribute that adds greatly to the film’s appeal. (2015) — Scott Marks
