Newly discharged from the Marines after World War II, 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,
attractive, and sexually free-spirited friends. His own
lovers included Edith Piaf, Spencer Tracy, Vivien Leigh,
Cary Grant, and the abdicated King of England Edward VIII,
and he arranged tricks or otherwise crossed paths with
Tennessee Williams, Charles Laughton, Vincent Price,
Katharine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth, Errol Flynn, Gloria
Swanson, Noël Coward, Mae West, James Dean, Rock Hudson and
J. Edgar Hoover, to name but a few.
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.
