Coming to theatres tomorrow, Friday, August 3:
SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD
DOC NYC, Palm Springs, Rome, BAFICI, Provincetown
The tell-all story of the man who catered to the sexual desires of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Scotty Bowers is an unsung Hollywood legend, known for catering to the sexual appetites of celebrities – straight, gay, and omnivorous – for decades. Filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer 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.
