Janet Maslin, The New York Times "The book is like a 286-page gossip column from Hollywood's golden age--it names all the names and spills all the secrets. but of course preferred women - even unto his sixties and even in his seventies was rarin' to go, is definately interesting but belief shakes once more. A good deal of this was done for closeted homosexuals at a time when the gay element in Hollywood lived with the threat and the thrill of exposure, while working in a medium that encouraged all of us to fall in love with male and female role models. Joanna Walters, in The Guardian, wrote that the book was a "titillating catalogue of sexual intrigue. In 1950 he stopped working at the service station and began a legitimate business as a party bartender.

I think there was plenty more he could have shared, but our current culture is still too puritan to accept what people do sexually. Younger readers--at least those raised in the Internet and TMZ age--may find nearly as shocking the fact that the stories were squelched by studio publicists and remained largely under wraps back in the day. They would lose their contract, their reputations and even some would end up in jail, Scotty believes, if he hadn’t been such a ‘good guy’ by catering to their every desire or perversion.Again, I don't know that we get to label other people's experiences, but what I can say is that reading about the ones Bowers describes was uncomfortable in the worst imaginable ways. I felt like I was reading the trashiest, cattiest tabloid out there, only it was about stars of the 1950's. Full Service is not only a fascinating chronicle of Hollywoods 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 th. A.Police were always on the look out for a means to indulge their petty vindictiveness, and homosexuality was, and is, a much frowned upon habit in Hollywood; even now.

On the one hand it's a scandalous summer beach read, packing with filthy juice Hollywood gossip that you may or may not believe. There may be a gray area as far as Scotty's own short latency period and his prism on desire and "making people happy", but he seems to be at peace with what happened to him.You also don't have to inevitably indicate love by talking about swelling cocks or fizzing crotches (trying to avoid the word moist;-)). The man is character actor Walter Pigeon (you’re going to want to leave the IMDB app open on your phone while reading – you know more of these actors and actresses than you think), and what he wants is to give ol’ Scotty a hummer. He also claims to have provided women—mostly prostitutes—to Alfred Kinsey as interview subjects for his famous study on human sexuality.
