This is the deliciously scandalous story of Scotty Bowers, a handsome ex-Marine who landed in Hollywood after World War II and became confidante, aide de camp and lover to many of Hollywood’s greatest male—and female—stars. In the 1940s and '50s, Scotty ran a gas station on Hollywood Boulevard where he would connect his friends with actors and actresses who hid their true sexual identities for fear of police raids at gay bars, societal shunning and career suicide. An unsung Hollywood legend, Bowers would cater to the sexual appetites of celebrities—straight and gay—for decades, remaining discreet until he finally spilled his secrets in the 2012 bestselling memoir Full Service. While the studio PR machines were promoting their stars as wholesome and monogamous, Bowers was fulfilling their true desires. Full of jaw-dropping reveals, this spicy documentary by director Matt Tyrnauer (Valentino: The Last Emperor, Citizen Jane: Battle for the City) tells his amazing story, as well as presents eye-opening takes on icons from the Hollywood Golden Age including Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Lana Turner, Ava Gardner and many more.
