Tab Hunter

His father, Charles Kelm, was Jewish. Tab was raised in California by his mother and maternal grandparents, Ida Sonnenfleth and John Henry Gelien.

He was the younger of two boys. His brother, Walter John Gelien born August 18, , was killed in Vietnam on October 28, , leaving seven children. He was one of the last actors to be put under exclusive contract at Warner Bros.

James Dean at age 21 b: James Dean and Tab Hunter were the youngest male stars under contract at Warner Bros.

Warner Brothers - in preliminary casting of the film Rebel Without a Cause - originally considered Tab Hunter and Debbie Reynolds , but the studio ultimately cast James Dean and Natalie Wood in the film's lead roles.

Agent-actor Dick Clayton brought the newly arrived New York actor James Dean to the Warner Bros. Dean frequently waited beside Hunter's studio lot portable dressing room trailer, sitting on the step-up, catching Hunter between his film set-up shots to talk, to learn about, to discuss Tab's film experiences, acting challenges on film-movie studio and location sets!.

During a verbal contest to re-name "Art Gilien," Art, sitting between his actor-agent friend Richard Clayton and talent agent Henry Willson , the pair of agents trying to come up with a re-branding for Art Gilien's new show-biz name; a serious amused dead-pan Art interjected - "what about Male Kelm" into their name choice debate; ignoring Art, Henry Willson remarked: "We have to get a tab on this new name!

What are your interests, Art? TAB -- HUNTER". Upon being discharged from the U. Coast Guard Service, Art Gilien returned to Los Angeles, sharing a rented room in Hollywood with his brother Walt.

During his absence serving in the U. Coast Guard, their mother had moved back to San Francisco. Dick Clayton, after returning from New York, began working in the mail room at Famous Artists Agency.

His boss, Charlie Feldman, one of the most respected agents in the film industry, and his colleagues encouraged Dick to become a sub-agent. Dick encouraged Art to pick up his education.

Art enrolled in the Del Powers Professional School. The school, just off Wilcox Avenue in Hollywood, was run by actress Mala Powers's mother and was crammed with kids who wanted to be in movies.

Art graduated with a high school diploma. Art supported a new athletic course, figure skating, where he lived at the Polar Palace, an ice rink on Van Ness near Melrose in Hollywood.

Besides horse training, Art began training to be a professional ice skater, gaining trophies on his ice-skating abilities and talents.

In this new endeavor, he met an entirely new group of people, who became his extended family of friends. Bob Turk, who became a choreographer, a director, and producer for the "Ice Capades;" Bobby Specht became an Ice Capades skating star; Joyce Lockwood, who became his skating partner in pairs; Catherine Machado and Richard Dwyer, both became stars on ice; the extraordinary Ronnie Robertson.

Art loved the athleticism of ice skating, the rigorous training, practicing figures and diligently skating through levels of tests, ranked in the nation's amateur standings.

Art skated both singles and pairs. Joyce and Art won the California Junior Pair Figure Skating Championship in , and the state's Senior Pair Championship the following year in During this period, Art supported himself by employment at the Orange Julius stand across from Hollywood's Musso and Frank restaurant; ushered at the Warner Bros.

Theater on Hollywood Boulevard, making seventy-five cents an hour, where Art met a young girl named Carol Burnett, also working as an usher.

Dick Clayton kept hounding Art about taking an acting career seriously, except Art wanted to skate, not waste time in a stupid acting class. Then one day Dick brokered the introduction that radically changed his life.

Willson is more of a personal manager than an agent. Willson handles all aspects of a client's career: discovering them, pitching them to the film studios, negotiating their contracts, counseling them - everything.

He represents the greatest-looking guys in town. Selznick; He had discovered future star Rhonda Fleming, Robert Walker and Jennifer Jones among others, for Selznick.

Major film actresses, such as Lana Turner, Jeanette MacDonald, and Ann Southern, had Henry as their agent. But Willson's real attention was focused on his list of male clients, specifically young, good-looking, all-American guys.

Henry believed that young women craved a male equivalent of the pinup stars who'd boosted the troop's morale during the war. Acting skill was secondary to chiseled features and a fine physique.

Prompted by Dick Clayton, Art was accompanied to Henry Willson's Bel Air residence, located on Stone Canyon Road. Clayton was a nervous hen mother.

People are always making jokes about Henry and his boys". Brother Walt was a young spirited adventurer, often initiating an interest in an active new experience.

Walt joined a school marching band, and Art followed him by joining his new interest. Walt performed in a school play, "The Wedding Shoes," that started Art thinking that maybe he could act, too.

The greatest experience brother Walt ever did for his baby brother Art, however, was to introduce him to horses. One weekend, on a lark, Walt took his brother Art to Du Brock's Riding Academy, at the corner of Riverside Drive and Los Feliz Boulevard adjacent the Los Angeles river bed.

The Du Brock's Riding Academy was a ramshackle old stable, located behind a huge green fountain that shot a geyser of water high into the air.

Art was scared to death as they rented a pair of nags and headed out on the bridle path, onto the riding trails. Art had chosen a western saddle so that he would have a horn to grab onto should he start to fall.

Although Art didn't like riding at first, soon Walt and Art were starting every Saturday morning with a trip to Du Brock's stable; even having a favorite horse, Star, a plain bay with a white star on his forehead.

On the trail one day, Walt yelled to his brother, "If you want to gallop, just give him a kick. Star wouldn't go faster than a slow trot.

That was the day Art fell in love with horses. Walt moved onto other interests, but Du Brock's became Art's home away from home.

Now Art hoarded every penny so he could buy an extra half hour on horseback. Saturday mornings, he was up and out by six, hitchhiking to the barn.

Owners Bud and Melba Du Brock got to know the blond-haired Gelien kid on a first-name basis. Soon, he was spending all his Saturdays there, doing chores for the grooms, Slim and Tommy.

He would trade labor for riding time - mucking out stalls, cleaning tack, feeding horses, stacking hay-bales, anything to be with the horses.

First, Art joined a regularly scheduled riding class. Griffith Park's bridle trails followed the Los Angeles River, riding the river bottom into the valley, right past Warner Bros.

Studio, all the way out to Republic Pictures. Art would gallop through Ace Hudkins' sprawling ranch, jumping his horse Smiling Joe over fences and hedges, while his mother's endless cliches bounced through his head: "In life, one must have dreams -- they give you a lift.

The film studios did lots of business with Du Brock's, and photographers often came by to shoot still photo layouts for movie magazines.

Art would gawk from the sidelines as some beautiful young actress would stand on a mounting block, slip her leg over the saddle, and smile for the still camera.

Art noticed a lot of these girls being escorted by the same guy, a charming Irish fellow who also was a regular at Du Brock's and a pretty good rider as well.

Overhearing someone say that he was an actor, Dick Clayton, who preferred Irish Lad as his preferred horse. One day, Dick Clayton showed up with actress Ann Blyth and a photographer in tow.

In the middle of the photo session, the actor spotted Art grappling with a pitchfork of manure. You must live here.

You're here every time I show up. What's your name? You got the look for it. How could he have known he'd end up being the most important person in his life?.

In , his mother a German Catholic, at the age of sixteen, the eldest daughter of John and Ida Gelien from Hamburg, was brought to the United States with her parents and three siblings, aboard the United States ship George Washington.

Using his connections Opa got their mother Gertrude a job as a ship-board stewardess with the Matson Lines, for which he now worked. He found a San Francisco apartment for the family and covered the first two months' rent.

Gertrude reclaimed her family surname Gelien and changed her sons' name to that, as well. Almost immediately, the relationship Walt and Art had with their mother started to mirror what Gertrude experienced with her own father.

The brothers would not see their mother for weeks at a time, as she went to sea to earn her salary. A single mother trying to raise two boys during the depths of the Depression.

The brothers lived in a a rented room in Mrs. Kelson's Divisadero Street apartment. Eager to better their station, Gertrude studied in her spare time to be a nurse, with a specialty in physical therapy.

The bump in pay allowed her to enroll Walt and Art in a private school. Barely school age, the brothers had adventures straight out of Tom Sawyer.

They wandered near Fisherman's Wharf, the Embarcadero, China Town and Golden Gate Park. In the cramped elevator of a hotel on Mason Street, their mother introduced the boys to Harry Koster.

He lived there when he wasn't at sea. Koster ran a ship's galley, just like their grandfather Opa. Possibly, this was the reason their mother trusted him when they'd met aboard the Monterey, a Matson cruise ship.

Gertrude dropped a bomb shell: "Harry and I have been married. You will treat him as your new father. George Shumway.
