You Should Know: Scotty Bowers

by Christie Grimm · March 17, 2016

Nothing is taboo to Scotty Bowers. Never has been, never will be. And there's something so beautifully refreshing about such an open, free life as his, personally unchecked by the concept of guilty pleasures. A self confessed Hollywood "Fixer," throughout his seventy some odd years in LA, Bowers has come to biblically know just about every big movie star you could think of, and then some. Offering up "carnal thrills and escapism of every kind" to the likes of Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Mae West, James Dean. A man "who knew Hollywood like no one else knew it," his recently published book, Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars, is a page flipper. And the subsequent documentary currently being filmed on his life? To say we can't wait would be an understatement.
