Summary
The wholesome image of America propagated by Hollywood in the 1940s, '50s and '60s is one of the most persistent in popular culture: loving wives, smiling children. But off the set, many of the actors who helped create this image were secretly leading very wild lives, and one man in particular was helping them: Scotty Bowers. At a time when sex outside of marriage was taboo, Scotty built up a reputation as the guy who could discreetly fix you up. Here, he tells his story for the first time: coming to Hollywood after serving in the Marines in World War II, working at a gas station on Hollywood Boulevard before being picked up by actor Walter Pidgeon, the first of many encounters with Hollywood's rich and famous.
Summary
A World War II veteran and Hollywood gas station attendant describes how his good looks and open bisexuality culminated in liaisons with numerous celebrities, providing a chronicle of Hollywood's sexual underground in the 1940s and 1950s
