"Republican assault since the chair really lost me with the chair. I'm you know I found myself interested by the relationship among the people at the gas station. Yeah was Was everyone strictly there to do. Business was was there any did. Was there any like hooking up or romances among the young guys who are both guys and girls who ended up moving in living with and going into business with each other really business with the person I introduce them to And they were to gas station because they didn't have a dime right. I mean dime and I was fixing up and making everything. Twenty dollar tricked and twenty dollars was quite a bit those days. Yeah this is the forties fifties. Yes it's forty forty five late forty five. What was over and and fifty s all fifties of course if you adjust for inflation twenty dollars was a lot of money back. Yeah sure but you never really raised your prices. Curious remain twenty and you got. You got a lot for twenty if gas was order. A gallon the mets a lot of money and it remained. That is amazing. Yeah and never varied or changed. Twenty five cents a gallon. Curious about though is is if any of these men especially after the war came to the gas station did they or was there such thing as self identifying as gay or were they it was strictly knows at eight straight. Yeah but they would go with someone that was gay just to make the twenty dollars right. Because they didn't have anything. Yeah Okay and and four people who did identify. There was kind of no other way to socialize. Was there was. There was a great way to so sure. But but you couldn't you couldn't just date somebody no right but if you hung around a gas station you can meet people know people have fun and it was just fun to be there and every night. There was up to thirty people hanging around a gas station. Yeah you're onto a an interesting point. That was news to me. I wasn't around. Then when well you were talking about a world in the forties and fifties when if you wanted to ensure guy who wanted to date another guy. It wasn't so easy really. You couldn't do it openly. You couldn't go find someone so easily and if you went to a bar you might be arrested quite frankly because the vice squad which was an lapd division. That shook down gay people basically an extortion ring. Police and advice was red hot so they. They created a dangerous environment. Workplaces were not hospitable. So let's say you had to go to you. Wanted to go to a gay bar. That was one of the few places to meet someone you had to worry about running into someone who you may be worked with in that could ruin your career your life. So we're talking about a very different time in a very different context so and on top of it. The studio system with morals clauses in the studio contracts made it impossible for gay actors to live and authentic lives so many levels of of restriction. In the city and Scotty created a more open and safe environment for people that really had to live their lives Walking on eggshells many senses of a good way to put it in those days remember there were no cellphones. There was no TV. You lived in a room by yourself with nothing but the walls look at so. The number one thing people wanted was company. Yes someone to talk to riot was number one. You know another thing that we talk about that is one of the. I guess splash year. Elements of the film is just the sheer volume of of names and celebrities who are mentioned in some contexts whether they came through the station or you just do them socially dealt with him at home. Yeah Brittan Clark Gable Katherine Hepburn. Lana Turner Georgia yeah Spencer Tracy Tracy Katharine Hepburn. Spencer Tracy is one that really struck me because it seemed like there was a and correct me if I'm wrong but it seemed like there was a real connection there for you know with me. Yeah Yeah because you can't separate Spencer Tracy had nothing to do each other dog. All it did was argue. Her putting him down all the time and She's how much time I spent with him. Go at five o'clock four o'clock state or one two in the morning sitting at the kitchen table with him slowly drinking into a drunken stupor. And then what? And then we'd go. I'd help him into bed and he would just after lying down he would get up and have to Piss and in the closet or Hispanic on me in bed because he was so loaded. Yeah and Never. And then he would. I would stay all night with him and he would The next morning would sage. You were so nice to state mentioned anything that happened at all. He didn't know didn't remember he didn't remember then. Never said a word about this thing and he would he would not suck on your cocky. Chew on it. You know who who that sounds terrible? No God oh wow that it was not in the film exclusives so for him. It was mostly about just strictly companionship indefinite year drinking getting drunk and having companionship. Without a doubt that was it. Yeah and that's the way it was with a lot of people who didn't have as I said a cellphone at TV right. Tv didn't come in for years. After the right you touched on all the names of their many names in the film but there are probably two hundred. Three hundred names mentioned who are some famous some formerly famous some obscure that aren't in the film because it's only ninety plus minutes And but the story is more than just about the mega stars of the period personified. Cary grant and Hepburn and Tracy and Vivien Leigh. Not everyone's gay by the way it's all forms of sex and sexuality but so much of Scotty story is about the average Joe who may be worked in the prop department or maybe someone who worked at bullocks Wilshire. You know of selling perfume touched so many lives and mostly in terms of same sexuality but it didn't have to be a movie star story but you know the film turns on Scotties Alternate history of Hollywood a counter narrative of Hollywood You do see another strata of a Hollywood existence in the film in the narrative about his relationship with an actor named Beach Dickerson. Who was a star of Roger Corman movies and was really our biggest client in the second frame of your your prostitution career. Beach for me is personifies. Incredible part of the Hollywood story. He's a young good looking guy who came here from Georgia to get into movies. But he didn't really hit it instead. He's The star in Roger Corman movies. Which are you know an incredible genre of no budget films? Then he strikes it rich flipping houses in Laurel Canyon House the Butler January. Three four five and six thousand dollars unbelievable. Believe me afterward to everything you could get below ten thousand dollars in. He bought one of the houses he bought it. He left to me. He paid four thousand dollars for it. I looked at says only worth a thousand but he paid four thousand howling and I sold it for six hundred thousand the same the same the same house exactly the way it was before so fortunes were found in many ways and Hollywood and you could come here intended to do one thing and end up doing quite another Which I think's part of the story that never told about the town and He came out in all of these great tales of the city. That you that you recount and another great element of thumb. This is just being at home with you in Lois. We were saying before you came. How how an Amer- we were by lowest. Rife Yeah She's way yeah she's she's The star we get to see her perform. We were saying we'd love to see her perform live Here in town. I do have to say by the way I was very upset. Every time I saw you on those ladder I wanNA to offers ladder your feet or disease used to you know it's still even if they did. That was precarious. Clamming up on that roof to clean out the gutters yet it was there was a vine that was going running from way down below and I was pulling that vinyl. Yeah no more no more ladder. That was that was a little house. Beach left to me. Up there in Laurel Canyon. That's right. What was your relationship like with beach? Virginia beach was a good friend. I met him way back when he came into gas station. And we were good friends for years. And what happened was he owned about. Fourteen houses Lower Canyon and every house in Laurel kanus on a hill right the moment by house. I'd go in shovel. All the dirt out. From underneath over decided ill every bit oversight bootleg a unit in there. Yeah like another unit. I'd have a three unit place when you'd House so we had three rentals and I did that to about ten houses. Did you consider beach to be Boyfriend lover. What was your Each what I don't know what he considered but he was a good friend and always nice to me and as I said making three units out of each house. That helped him a lot to share three rentals rather than one Cher. You know what the movie nails really well. Also with the story of Clark Gable and Randolph Scott is is this idea of relationships between men that are not I mean. Clearly now we have a name for them but at the time we didn't or we were afraid of the name that we would put to it or whatever. I feel like Clark Gable and Randolph Scott lived together and slept together but probably didn't think anything.

More than lives up to that description so this is a documentary about him during his time hanging. Out with Cary Grant and Randolph Scott Follows him he was a former sex worker the also hooked up like Katherine Hepburn prostitutes he says She wanna prostitutes yeah I mean people, were, having affairs especially same. Sex affairs the studio Dino obviously. Then admitting that you were gay was oh. My goodness Didn't do it. So the their handlers the celebrities handlers would hire. These folks they were Pam snow other word would hire pens to get the mess courts for the evening and sadly there were a lot of gay men there's a lot of books written about this a. Lot of gay. In. The closet, male stars of the, day that had to. Resort to getting these male escorts because they obviously couldn't go? Out, in public They couldn't go to the Oscars with their people they really liked so yeah Yeah and people. Have criticized him for talking about people they're all. Pretty much have. Passed, away You know so, he's talking about Cary Grant and Randolph Scott saying that they were actually. Lovers and live together and, it was sort of just an underground secret, and, people knew that so he says that they're they're.

"And then we went on this two year voyage together sifting through his past, and that's where he starts to walk down this mirrored corridor to to find for himself what this past was. So you know, I, I mean, I think watching the film and watching some of the other contemporary figures in Scotties life speak about that time. It gets harder and harder to refute there. There have been a contingent of of. People who are protectors of some reputations in Hollywood. I've in reading reviews of Scotties book. I remember biographer, Spencer Tracy being called out and carry grants, daughter called out as as people who are real deniers of that. These figures had secret histories, and I wonder how you see that conversation going. Now, I think this is the never ending conversation. It seems the film hasn't even come out yet. We're about ten days away. The New York Times wrote a lead piece in art section yesterday. And in it was quoted a film historian named Janine Basinger who takes the Pearl clutching dismissive stance that this person is full of that, and I don't wanna know this and I doubt it's true anyway. And she says, I think something that I prefer to focus on the onscreen work of these people. Twitter lit up yesterday. I was glad to see. I'm pushing back on this pointing out that this particular film historian scholarship in large part focuses on the sort of matter relationship between the stars lives and their performances. They started to wonder why when the subject is homosexuality is this suddenly rebutting topic when it is in the realm of heterosexuality it's okay to talk About, I think for me, that's the key to unlocking a lot of the outrage that surfaced when Scotty publishes book. And now that this movie is on the horizon seems to be welling up. Again. I find it very interesting. I find it somewhat upsetting actually in in an interesting way, people have said to me in sort of coded things about Scotty Bowers and the prospect of the films such as, oh, well, that's not my Cup of tea. I wonder what, what does that phrase really mean? It wise at your Cup of tea. And I- beginning to sense that these things are codes that are have stuck with us. You can't say, oh, I don't like stories about gay people. I don't wanna hear about messy sex lives of people that were having sex with other women. Having sex with other women are that just disturbs me. You can't say that implied society now, but you can say things like that's not my Cup of tea, or I preferred focus on the work of Katherine Hepburn and not hear about these other details. This seems to me to be very parochial attitude and one that is fall squarely in to the category of home phobia. The other thing that surprising about that attitude, if you actually watch the film is that Scotty at is a is a wholly joyous person. There's nothing dark about this period or these seek. Fritz. These are people who were fulfilling their desires. It's very clear to me that Scotty was a benign figure who helped people live authentic lives in a particular town where it was impossible for them to do so because of the law, the law was not on their side..

"So at the time you meet Scotty Bowers, he he hasn't yet written his memoir, what do was he thinking about it? He had written it and it was an manuscript icy. Okay. So this is really another compelling part of the back story. Is that. People had asked Scotty Bowers, who when I met him was eighty nine about the turn ninety to write a memoir for years, and he would never do it because he didn't want to betray the trust of anyone. Which in the context of the times in which he worked makes a lot of sense. He had finally been convinced to do it by a group of friends. And I think everyone was really dad who was a bold face name with with a few exceptions, Corby daubing one of them. So he'd written this manuscript with a co author, and he showed it to Gorby doll, and we'd all said, I'll presumably said, I'll help you get this published in within the few months. They had a deal. So it was in process. I met him and found him to be so sharp for eighty nine, very, very spry and great rack on tour. So I've started making that movie immediately a, he gave me his blessing and it was because of the Gorby dial connection that there was an immediate bond of trust, which is essential. Of course, when you're about to embark upon what turned out to be a two year cinema, verite shoot, that trusts was almost complete and very solid just because of this endorsement in the film. We see the publication of the book and and we follow him over the next couple years. Can you kind of set the stage here for for Scotty, Bowers activity at the peak of his career of sexual fixing and the nineteen forties, nineteen, fifties? I don't get the impression from watching the film that he was a person who's greatly motivated by money. I think money was the farthest thing. Really. I think he was. Motivated by. He says, in fact, desire to make people happy. Now that takes a lot of psychological unpacking which. Happens in the film. You're never told really why anything happens in this film which is very much on purpose and very much the way I like to do things. I'm not a big believer in just telling the audience why something's occurring. I think the the art of cinema verite is against that anyway. So it's mostly verite film. It goes back and forth between timeframe. So it's it's ping-pong between the golden age of Hollywood, the post Erin, Hollywood, and the present day of a person who in the first minutes of the film turns ninety. So I see the film is mirrored hall of memories for Scotty Bowers. And at the same time, he becomes a symbol of a hidden world. Of Hollywood, that by necessity could not be public because in the period of the studio system, there were morals clauses and the big contracts. So not only was it not an accepted societal norm to have an alternative sexuality. But if you were gay or lesbian in Hollywood and it became publicly known your career was over. So this was a very different time, and it makes sense that a figure like Scotty Bowers could turn up in Hollywood as a ex-marine right off the boat from the South Pacific and set up shop as a male Madam in what seems at first, like very improbable venue a gas station. So he invents the dry. Through brothel really. Kind of the Ray crock of sax in some. He didn't fantasize though. He didn't. Because he wasn't driven by money. Yes, exactly. There you go, you've I think you're getting at it. I mean, he really was of. He found a Nisha me, I think. And yes, of course. Prostitution's the oldest profession. There's prostitution everywhere. I'm sure. Scotties carriage trade were the kings and queens of Hollywood, and there was a really big necessity for a character figure in that town, who was the mutual secret keeper? And in today's parlance, we would say he created a safe space. Now we don't normally think of houses of prostitution is safe spaces, but this one very much was and you can say, well, how do you know you weren't there in the nineteen forties? While a lot of people miraculously were alive who are witnesses to and ide- brief them on and off camera..

"She was the great play Reid who wrote picnic, John Recchi, the transgressive gain office to road sexual outlaw Scotties in those books, but he's called smitty and sunny. So the first time he was Scotty Bowers in a major book. I knew Bill man, I call Bill and who's the author of the Kate book? Yes. Bill man, the author of Kate who's a historian who specializes in in gay Hollywood narratives. Actually, he gave me immediately Scott, his contact. I wrote it on a posting. Left it on v. dolls side table where his bottle of scotch also sat always. And the next time I went over to see him some months later, Scotty Bowers was in the room there. He was in the living room. I met him. He was his acquintance. It wasn't that wasn't planned at all. But what happened was once he and Scotty got back together, they were almost inseparable for the last five years of cornell's life and mind you. They had met in nineteen forty eight at this mythic gas station and how long they been out of touch. I think it was probably a decade. Okay. Because we'd all was really living in Italy full-time. He had just started to move back to LA fulltime and his companion. Howard Austin had died a few years before that these were lonely years for him so it it makes a kind of incredible Preussen sense that the Mel Madam of his youth would still be around and. Reenter his life after his companion fifty, four years had died. There was something really epic about all this. This is not part of the movie incidentally. It's not part of Scotties memoir which preceded the movie by year, so preceded the least the advent of making the film. So at the time you met Scotty, I think you are also developing an idea to make a documentary about gore Vidal. I was after my first film Valentino. The last emperor seem like a natural subject to tackle gore Vidal because of my relationship with them. So I told with the idea for a while were few other projects out there and. One of them came to fruition that I had been a part of, but I- things happened and I went onto other things and also for me, that was one that might have been a little too close. Actually, I think is a. Documentarian you wanna get close, but you don't wanna be too close and my. Life was a little bit entangled with udalls as executor. I think you can do movie being really close in. You can do movie being the partner, the romantic partner, but that's a different movie. Right? And I've never done anything like that. I'm not sure I I ever will, but there's a real distinction there. So the gory Dahl movie didn't make sense to me. I eventually ended up as a talking head in the best of enemies which is directed by Morgan novel, very good film about William buckling Gorby doll. I was very happy to contribute that film because. I got to tell a lot of the the, the story from the dolls perspective, and apparently Morgan ever told me that we're not many people that were standing up for Gorby doll. There were more people willing to stand up for Bill Buckley, which outraged me we don't really needs to be defended..
