Tab Hunter’s Secrets

Michael Schulman on the upcoming documentary “Tab Hunter Confidential,” which covers the former teen heartthrob’s life as a closeted gay movie star.

Hunter was born Arthur Kelm on July 11, 1931 in New York City, to Gertrude (Gelien) and Charles Kelm. His mother was a German (Catholic) immigrant, and his father was Jewish. Following his parents' divorce, Hunter grew up in California with his mother, older brother Walter, and maternal grandparents, Ida (Sonnenfleth) and John Henry Gelien. His mother changed her sons' surnames to her maiden name, Gelien.

Tab Hunter enlisted in the Coast Guard at age 15 (he lied about his age) and so served just after World War II.
