Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood
Opens Friday, August 3
Scotty Bowers is an unsung Hollywood legend, known for having catered to the sexual appetites of celebrities – straight, gay and omnivorous – for decades. Filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer (Citizen Jane, Valentino: The Last Emperor) captures Scotty in his 90s as he delivers the ultimate counter-narrative of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Prepare yourself for a different take on Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Lana Turner, Ava Gardner… the list goes on. Tyrnauer’s portrayal has a touch of Grey Gardens as Scotty copes with hoarder tendencies to uncover buried secrets.
