Tab & Fab in '59

Youngsters Tab Hunter and Fabian listen to advice from old timers Frank Sinatra and Gary Cooper back in 1959. Frank was probably shooting CAN CAN on an adjoining 20th Century Fox lot, when Fabian was making his debut in the pleasant HOUND DOG MAN - while over at Warners co-stars Coop and Tab chat on the set of THEY CAME TO CORDURA. Tab and Fab went on to decent careers, see labels - Tab also sang a bit, and Fabian posed for "Playgirl" in the 70s. Here they are at a later date. 
Don Siegel's HOUND DOG MAN is a pleasant diversion and worth seeking out - as per review (Fabian label).

  1. I know it's not much of a movie but for obvious reasons I think I will have to add HOUND DOG MAN to my 'must get' list.
