Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars by Scotty BowersNow the subject of the hit documentary Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, praised by Vanity Fair as full of revelations and Entertainment Weekly as deliciously salacious, Full Service is the remarkable true story of Scotty Bowers, the gentleman hustler, during the heyday of classic Hollywood. Newly discharged from the Marines after World War II, Bowers arrived in Hollywood in 1946. Young, charismatic, and strikingly handsome, he quickly caught the eye of many of the towns stars and starlets. He began sleeping with some himself, and connecting others with his coterie of young, attractive, and sexually free-spirited friends. His own lovers included Edith Piaf, Spencer Tracy, Vivien Leigh, Cary Grant, and the abdicated King of England Edward VIII, and he arranged tricks or otherwise crossed paths with Tennessee Williams, Charles Laughton, Vincent Price, Katharine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Errol Flynn, Gloria Swanson, No�l Coward, Mae West, James Dean, Rock Hudson and J. Edgar Hoover, to name but a few.
Full Service is not only a fascinating chronicle of Hollywoods sexual underground, but also exposes the hypocrisy of the major studios, who used actors to propagate a myth of a conformist, sexually innocent America knowing full well that their stars personal lives differed dramatically from this family-friendly mold. As revelation-filled as Hollywood Babylon, Full Service provides a lost chapter in the history of the sexual revolution and is a testament to a man who provided sex, support, and affection to countless people.

Bowers has no regrets—having led a life of pleasure, satisfaction and joy that the rest of us can only envy. He began sleeping with some himself, and connecting others with his coterie of young, attractive, and sexually free-spirited friends. Edgar Hoover, to name but a few. His startling memoir includes great figures like Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn. The wholesome image of the postwar American family was acted, written, directed, and designed by people for whom such a life was never possible and Bowers writes about their pain and brilliance with the childlike wonder of Chauncey Gardiner. Turner Classic Movies will never quite look the same. Many of the actors mentioned in his book established the basis for what was for decades considered normal: cookie-cutter, heterosexual marriage.
