Description Two general phases in the life of Scotty Bowers are presented. The first, and arguably the most salacious, is the post-WWII era after the end of his military duty when he was working at a Richfield gas station in Los Angeles. Although he was already no stranger to the breadth of sexual activity in which humans can engage, his encounter with Walter Pidgeon at the gas station, he who invited Scotty up to his place "for a swim", led to Scotty's "career" as a sexual being for hire, as well as one procuring sexual favors between others, albeit never with a dime going into his own pocket for that latter service (i.e. he never having considered himself a pimp). At a time when the Hays code was in effect which led to the movie studios closely controlling at least the public lives and thus images of especially their stars, Scotty's services became known as trusted ones for Hollywood celebrities who wanted/needed a sexual outlet of any nature outside of a conventional husband/wife marriage. This part of Scotty's story focuses largely on the sexual needs of Hollywood A-listers who were straight to middle America, with, in many cases, their homosexual orientation the worst kept secret in Tinseltown. This part of Scotty's life was unknown to his current wife of over thirty years, Lois Bowers, until he recently published his book on the matter on which this documentary is based. The second is his current life in which he is peddling the aforementioned book and which he is living off many of the connections made during his years as a hustler, such as owning several houses given to him. It is arguably something about Scotty's current life as opposed to his years as a hustler and sexual procurer that concerns Lois more than anything about their marriage.

The movie, "Bud and Gilda: Hollywood's Sexiest Couples", is not a documentary. It is a film chronicling the evolution of Bud and Gilda, and their marriage. It is the story of how the couple became the stars of Hollywood, and how their relationship, which is almost nonexistent outside of the movies, shaped the lives of the people around them. The movie does not aim to present a history of the relationship. It focuses on the people, and the times that shaped the relationship, and the times that shaped their careers. Bud and Gilda are both very famous, and their story is well known. In the movie, the couple is presented as they were when they were younger, and they were married when they were middle-aged. This creates a sense of realism to the movie. The movie is not perfect, however. The relationship between Bud and Gilda is not explored at all. The movie also focuses on the old footage of the couple, which is not very informative. The movie also fails to focus on the way the relationship shaped the lives of the people around them. This is because the relationship is not much discussed in the movie. The movie also fails to cover the music industry, and the way that the couple created their own music. Overall, this movie is an interesting look at the life of Bud and Gilda. However, it is not a great movie. Bud and Gilda: Hollywood's Sexiest Couples, is a movie that is much better suited to an audience that is more knowledgeable about the movie, and is better suited to those that are already familiar with the couple's history.

I don't know why this movie didn't get a wider release, but it's worth seeing. We learn about the history of Hollywood, including the deaths of several key people. The documentary also includes interviews with some of the key players, including the director of "A Sound of Thunder." I think the biggest shocker is that the most prominent man in the industry, Milius, was actually a villain, until he started giving himself to the government. This was a very sad and sad story, and I think it's important to see that this man gave his life for the nation, but his personal life was very selfish. I think the best part of the movie is that it's from a very well-informed source, so you learn a lot about the Hollywood elite, and their reasons for doing what they did. I was really impressed with the sound quality, and how well they shot the movie. The only problem was that the movie was very long, and the interviews didn't go very deep into the history of Hollywood, and it would have been nice if there had been more of them. The only other problem I had with the movie was the ending, which was a bit of a letdown. I think that the film makers could have made the ending more interesting and emotional, but the way it ended was just a little too depressing. It was more of a "Dazed and Confused" ending, than a "An American Carol" ending. Overall, I thought it was a very interesting look into the history of Hollywood, and the people that have influenced it. I would definitely recommend seeing it.
