Mentioned in this episode:
Allan Glaser is a producer know for the feature films Lust in the Dust, Tab Hunter Confidential, and Tab & Tony. He was born and raised in Norfolk, VA and attended University of Southern California. While at USC, Glaser was employed at 20th Century Fox, where he ultimately became Director of Acquisitions of feature films. While in that position he met Tab Hunter. The two formed Fox Run Productions and produced Lust in the Dust, starring Hunter, Divine, and Lainie Kazan. Released in 1985, the film was a hit and landed Glaser a production deal at 20th Century Fox. Glaser’s next film, Dark Horse, was based on a story by Tab Hunter. It starred Mimi Rogers and Ed Begley, Jr., and premiered at Cannes Film Festival. Glaser convinced Hunter to write his autobiography, which became a New York Times best-seller. They then turned the book into the critically-acclaimed documentary of the same name, Tab Hunter Confidential, which premiered at SXSW 2015 before enjoying a successful run in theaters and then on Netflix. Between his feature film work, Glaser worked as a production executive for several major studios. Allan and Tab were life partners from 1983 until 2013, when they married, and then spouses until Hunter’s death in 2018.
