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. Scotty slept with many stars himself, and connected others with his friends. Here, he tells his story for the first time. Scotty came to Hollywood after serving in the Marines in World War II, and began working at a gas station on Hollywood Boulevard. One day, he was approached and picked up by actor Walter Pidgeon, who whisked him off to a friend's villa for the first of many encounters with Hollywood's rich and famous. He developed long-term friendships with stars like Katharine Hepburn and Noel Coward, but he always kept it quiet--until he now provides a lost chapter in the history of the sexual revolution.

Absolute Rubbish - Proves Any Hobo Can make money selling Nonsense

SMBE Mar 05, 2013

Too much detail that should have remained private. What people do in private is their business & should remain so especially after they have died since they cannot refute it. To much explicit sexual detail. I wonder how much of it is (was) true. It made me wish the moral code (that he eludes to) was never abolished.

Vile. Disgusting. Nauseating. Contains explicit language, detailed homosexuality. The author starts out being molested my a friend's father at 8 years old (yet did not feel disgusted!!!) Then another pedophile came around and performed oral sex on him. Next thing you know he was a shoe shine boy and newspaper delivery boy. It's the depression. Suddenly another dirty old man gives him the eye. He is being paid by over a dozen priests to be molested. Once again, he never feels horrified or abused. He feels he is earning money and doing those poor, lonely pedophiles a favour! sometimes he describes how much he enjoys these experiences. WTF! Then in highschool he would attend parties where he would go in a room and one at a time the men would take a turn with him for pocket change (up to 15 men in 1 evening). Honestly these stories made me want to throw up and I am imagining that this child had every STD imaginable. Later as an adult he was still turning tricks with men and women and helping friends to do so, and through this, he met some famous people. Also he participated in the war against Japan, where after a battle, he proclaimed "as long as my c*** and b**** were intact, I could still enjoy my life".... I don't know how many of the stories are true (take a nap in a park, a stranger comes and gives you oral sex). Nasty. Disturbing.
