Tab HunterTab Hunter, the All-American movie star who made teen hearts race in the 1950s with his blond good looks and blue eyes, has died at 86, his longtime partner Allan Glaser confirmed to USA TODAY.

Glaser said Hunter collapsed in front of their home in Santa Barbara, Calif., and went  into cardiac arrest after a blood clot migrated from his leg to his heart.  He added that medical personnel spent six hours trying to revive him, without success.

He would have turned 87 on Wednesday.

Hunter was a star for several years. In addition to his hit movies, his recording of “Young Love” topped the Billboard pop chart in 1957.

But in his 2005 memoir, “Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star,” Hunter recounted the stresses of being a love object to millions of young women when he was, in reality, a gay man.
