Runtime: 98 minutes
Director: Matt Tyrnauer
Genre: Documentary, Gay, Historical
A deliciously scandalous story of Scotty Bowers, a handsome exMarine who landed in Hollywood after the Second World War and became confidante, aide de camp and lover to many of Hollywood’s greatest stars. In the 1940s and '50s, he ran a gas station where he would connect his military friends with those in the closet. An unsung Hollywood legend, Bowers would cater to the sexual appetites of celebrities, straight and gay, for decades. This cinema-vérité documentary tells his story, as well as an alternate pre-Stonewall history of Hollywood.
