Don't Ask, Don't Tell

Tallulah Bankhead and friends at Finnochio's, ca. 1950's

"How should I know, dahling? He's never sucked my cock." - Tallulah Bankhead, queried about co-star Tab Hunter's sexual orientation

Tab Hunter and friends in The Girl He Left Behind (1956, Warner Bros.)


  1. The hell with Tab--who's the guy at the front of the line?

  2. It would appear to be Aldo Ray's stunt double -- and Alec Baldwin's grandfather is behind Tab!

  3. I thought I was going to be the only one! Great taste seeks its own level at SSUWAT! I love Tab, and think he looks adorable here, but, yes, I was drawn more to the guy in front as well. "Happy trails, to you...." ha!

  4. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah....
    But the guy in the front doesn't want his fancy tickled like Tab does....

  5. In Tab Hunter's autobiography he used to jokingly call this movie,"The Girl With The Left Behind." Natalie Wood was his costar and years later he wrote and directed a movie about a horse and Natalie's daughter starred in it. Tab also wrote the movie,"Lust In The Dust." He wanted John Waters to direct it, but John refused because he only directs movies that he writes.
