Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars
Title: Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars
Author: Scotty Bowers
Newly discharged from the Marines after WWII, Scotty Bowers arrived in Hollywood in 1946. Young, charismatic and strikingly handsome, he quickly caught the eye of many of the town’s stars and starlets. He began sleeping with some himself and connecting others with his coterie of young and attractive friends. His own lovers included Edith Piaf, Spencer Tracy, Vivien Leigh and Cary Grant.
Full Service is not only a fascinating chronicle of Hollywood’s sexual underground, but also exposes the hypocrisy of the major studios, who used actors to propagate a myth of a conformist, sexually innocent America knowing full well that their stars’ personal lives differed dramatically from this family-friendly mold. As revelation-filled as Hollywood Babylon, Full Service provides a lost chapter in the history of the sexual revolution and is a testament to a man who provided sex, support, and affection to countless people.
