DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis visits this Los Feliz home of documentarian Jeffrey Schwarz whose films include "I Am Devine," "Spinetingler! The William Castle Story," "Vito" and "Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon." Jeffrey talks about his brand new film "Tab Hunter Confidential," which is having its world premier this month at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin. Topics include the thrift shop purchase that first got him hooked on Tab, how he got the iconic star to open up and Tab's lifelong passion for horses. Jeffrey also talks about what motivates him to devote years of his life to telling these stories, his favorite part of filmmaking and the Russell Tovey "Looking" controversy. He also recalls the worst job he ever had (it involves strippers), the first movie he remembers seeing in a theater (it involves someone being assassignated) and the 40th birthday party in Palm Springs he'll never forget.
