Well, if you look at the cover of his memoir, you'll see a strikingly handsome man in his Marine uniform. Most stories feel like they were directly dictated since they end in rhetorical questions more often than in typical literature. I got the real sense while reading that he had a hell of a mess on his hands, and I could see he did the best he could with what Bowers dumped in his lap. I have a difficult time believing that Bowers was able to remember details of all of these supposed “tricks” without having kept note of them somewhere. I suppose it's possible, but even if it were I find it strange he never accepted money for hooking stars up with their little dalliances.

Of the love of his life, Vivien Leigh, he plumbs into the depths of his soul to fish up this poetic apothegm: "She was a hot, hot lady.

It doesn't seem that he had actual affairs with most of these people; it seems the ones he had the longest 'relationships' with were quite less famous. He began sleeping with some himself, and connecting others with his coterie of young, attractive, and sexually free-spirited friends.

If they had had the chance to be out and in the open like their contemporaries today, I don't think most of them would have stayed in the closet. This is salacious, graphic material, but I read reviews beforehand and was aware of and prepared for its type of content. So that either means that it's complete bullshit, or that the truth is even crazier than he tells it. David Patrick Columbia, New York Social Diary "They said he'd never talk -- but at long last, the legendary Scotty Bowers has told his story, with all the honesty, compassion and insight that made him a confidant of movie stars, directors, billionaires, and politicians. usually the stories that are more fleshed out and less "We did this and that and I don't remember when".However, the big draw of this book is Scotty's tawdry times running a makeshift queer brothel out of a gas station on Hollywood Blvd. Young, charismatic, and strikingly handsome, he quickly caught the eye of many of the town's stars and starlets. Lambda Literary "[If] you're one of those people who still owns a vintage princess phone, watches Mad Men obsessively, and yearns to go back to a "simpler" time when men and women exchanged witty banter in mid-Atlantic accents instead of jumping into the sack, read Bowers' book. Perhaps he did have sexual liaisons or provide them for all of these Old Hollywood celebrities, but in the wise words of Whitney Houston: "show me the receipts! That is a trick we are all learning that is gradually undermining the pursuit of – or the hope for – history.

The post-War years used to be very decadent, but no one talked about it and so most thought everything was very innocent. Although Bowers considers himself mainly heterosexual, he has never had any qualms about having an equal amount of sex with men. I have to admit these passages were difficult to read, especially since he tells the exploits so casually when the rest of the world will read them for pedophilia. Some might wonder if any of this (or all) could possibly be correct, but the well respected author, Gore Vidal, validates this information by admitting that "Scotty" does not lie.Bowers is so committed to star-fucking (both literal and figurative), and name-dropping, and building up his own legend that none of this reaches fun or factual. These recollections of Scotties are sensational as they include a list of the great and the good of Hollywood of that period and provide so much in widening our understanding of how that strange place works: it is stunning how this underworld went on without a blip on the radar. And taking a page from his own playbook, I guess I can say anything I want about Bowers now that he's dead.
