SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD is a scintillating, crowd-pleasing portrait of unsung Hollywood legend Scotty Bowers. Having just been mustered out of the Marines Corps after the Second World War, Bowers came to Hollywood in 1946. Strikingly handsome and personable, he immediately caught the eye of many of the town’s stars, who encountered him at the gas station where he worked on Hollywood Boulevard. Scotty began having sex with many of the key players in the movie colony and soon started connecting many of them--who had to hide their often complex true sexual identities from the public--with his band of beautiful and promiscuous friends, most of them newly discharged from the military. The cinema vérité documentary from director Matt Tyrnauer (Valentino: The Last Emperor) is a secret history of Hollywood in the pre-Stonewall era, and it's not to be missed. Prepare yourself for a different take on Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Lana Turner, Ava Gardner and many more icons from the Hollywood Golden Age.

IN PERSON: director Matt Tyrnauer
