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 stars. In the 1940s and ‘50s, Scotty ran a gas station in the shadow of the studio lots where he would connect his friends with actors and actresses who had to hide 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. In 2012, he finally spilled his secrets in a memoir, which revealed a dramatic, pre-Stonewall alternate history of Hollywood. Winner of a Critics' Choice Documentary Award. Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. "Who knew that history could be such titillating fun?" - Bruce DeMara, TheToronto Star
