Few people know the secrets of Hollywood like Scotty Bowers, who started a judgment-free escort service out of his gas station in 1940s Hollywood. A charismatic and handsome soldier, Bowers set movie stars up with men (in the case of Spencer Tracy) and/or women (Katharine Hepburn was a client for decades) and earned a small fortune doing it. Now in his nineties, Bowers is a hoarder and maybe not the greatest husband, but this light-hearted documentary doesn’t dwell on that, preferring instead to present Bowers as an entrepreneur providing a much-needed service to the many, many closeted movie stars of old Hollywood.

Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood screens at 4:10 and 8:30pm.
