SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD

  • Metro Cinema at the Garneau Theatre 8712 109 Street Northwest Edmonton, AB, T6G 1E9 Canada (map)

Directed by Matt Tyrnauer | 2017 | USA | 98 min | 18+

Based on the book “Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars,”
by Scotty Bowers with Lionel Friedberg

Scotty Bowers was 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. While the studio PR machines were promoting their stars as wholesome and monogamous, Bowers was fulfilling the true desires of many of them!

This wildly entertaining doc gives us not just Scotty’s story, but a plethora of juicy takes on icons from the Hollywood Golden Age including Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, and many more.
