A Case of the Gays

In 1956, Natalie Wood goes to the Academy Awards with Tab Hunter, her co-star in "The Girl He Left behind” - Hunter will go on to leave all girls behind when he comes out in his 2005 autobiography, “Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star.” Reports of Hunter’s alleged romances with Debbie Reynolds and Natalie Wood are strictly fodder for studio publicity departments. As Wood and Hunter embark on a well-publicized yet fictitious romance, promoting his apparent heterosexuality while promoting their films, insiders develop their own headline for the item: "Natalie Wood and Tab Wouldn't."
