Scotty Bowers, the star of Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, was a very busy man in his youth.
In the wake of World War II, he left his rural town to make something of himself, and took a job at a gas station in Hollywood.
This brought him into close contact with the stars, and Bowers soon found he could offer other services that were more profitable and risqué...
With a group of young handsome studs, Bowers offered gay hook-ups for Hollywood stars who had to put on a straight front amongst the post-production code moral panic of the 1930s.
Having written a tell-all book, Bowers now goes to signings and receives mixed responses, while journalists and researchers unpack the importance of his revelations.
Meanwhile, Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood follows emotional catch-ups between Scotty and his old hustler buddies.
Together, they reminisce about their sexual escapades, and tell raunchy stories about stars that history tried to whitewash.
