Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood Regie Matt Tyrnauer


Mr. Tyrnauer surreptitiously hoses away the layers of dirt to reveal the fragility of his subject’s anything-goes hedonism. . . . Consequently, what starts out salty ends up as something sadder and more complicated.

One of the film’s advantages over the book is that it brings in the testimonies of many other people—from friends and fellow ex-hustlers to Hollywood historians and insiders—all of whom support Scotty’s veracity while adding additional perspectives of their own.

The documentary is most evocative when operating in two modes: following Bowers in the present day as he wanders his cluttered Hollywood homes and ruminates on past “tricks,” and using footage from classical Hollywood productions to underscore just how obvious the “secret” proclivities of stars were.
