Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood 11/20/18

Kino Lorber

Matt Tynauer’s frank, unrated documentary about the wild times of gay and straight hustler-procurer Scotty Bowers is built around his 2012 tell-all book about the Hollywood sex underground of the late ’40s and ’50s. Scotty tells his own story in a way that compels belief. It’s a fine docu, sort of an exposĂ© item but more credible than Hollywood Babylon. But it’s also not for all audiences, as some hardcore content is included. On DVD from Kino Lorber/Greenwich Entertainment.
