Tab Hunter knew that he couldn't sing. He was also very shy.
But, he was a Star of Films & Music because he was stunningly
good looking. I've read that he was very charming in 'real life'.
His facial expressions show how shy he is, as he sings his 1957
UK & USA No.1 - 'Young Love' - on 'The Perry Como Show'. You
can see how glad he was to get the performance over, by his
big sigh of relief at the end of the song.....
