Event Description

This sensational exposé gives you view into a secret chapter of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Based on his bestselling tell-all memoir, legendary hustler Scotty Bowers chronicles his decades spent as a sexual procurer to the stars. From a gas station on the edge of the studio lots, the dashingly handsome ex-Marine ran a covert matchmaking service, connecting his band of friends to the movie industry’s glitterati—many of them gay and closeted. Discover a different side of Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Lana Turner and more in this fascinating portrait of an unsung legend.
