Scotty Bowers

Scotty Bowers, a former US Marine, reportedly ran a rent boy ring for top people.

He also reportedly supplied girls to top people.

These top people reportedly included Spencer Tracy, Cole porter, Cary Grant, George Cukor, Rock Hudson, the Duke of Windsor, Edith Piaf, Rita Hayworth, Katherine Hepburn and Vivien Leigh.

Reportedly, Scotty Bowers set Hepburn up with 'over 150 different women.'

Scotty Bowers has now written 'Full Service: My Adventures In Hollywood And The Secret Sex Lives Of The Stars'.

Bowers says it all started in 1946, when he was aged 23, and newly out of the Marines.

He got a job at a gas station near Paramount Pictures, reports the New York Times.

At the gas station, actor Walter Pidgeon propositioned him with a $20 bill.

Soon Bowers was servicing a number of clients himself, as well as setting them up with his Marine friends.

How about Kenneth Anger's "Hollywood Babylon"?

So the Katherine Hepburn/Spencer Tracy affair was all a big shop front to cover up the real scandal?

I suppose if I had cared enough, I would have figured out Katherine was gay.

She said one thing that I loved. Especially in retrospect to what we know now today.

She said she understood the subtleties of power play, like augmenting her 5’7” height with high heels and upswept hair so that she towered over short studio bosses.

Did Katherine Hepburn stay in Jersey ever. I heard a rumour she did.

U can say that. They may have been great friends, but lovers? No.

So many marriages of convienince occured back then and even now to cloak and give some kind of cover for otherwise distastefull and generally unaccepted behaviour..and to be sucessfull in the movies or hollywood you had to put out as well as take it i guess..
Think about all the sham couplings out there..what are they in aid of.
sometimes i just think people are just so gross and base.
Cheers A13
