Sexual secrets of Hollywood's golden era laid bare by former 'fixer':
A former U.S. Marine has claimed in a book that he ran a clandestine prostitution ring for homosexual and bisexual male film stars in the 1940s, and to have arranged sexual liaisons for leading actresses.
Scotty Bowers, now aged 88, is unveiling what he claims were the antics of the Hollywood elite including Cary Grant, Rock Hudson, Vivien Leigh, Katharine Hepburn and even the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
He claims that he set up Hepburn with "more than 150 different women". Other stories relate to Spencer Tracy and Cole Porter.
In an interview with the New York Times, Mr Bowers said: "I've kept silent all these years because I didn't want to hurt any of these people. And I never saw the fascination. So they liked sex how they liked it. Who cares?

"I finally said 'yes' because I'm not getting any younger and all of my famous tricks are dead by now. The truth can't hurt them anymore." Mr Bowers's story will be told in a book called Full Service: My Adventures in Hollywood and the Secret Sex Lives of the Stars which is to be published on Feb 14 by Grove Press.
In it, he describes how, after serving in the Second World War, he arrived in Hollywood and worked at a petrol station.

He says he went on to have encounters with other film industry insiders while working as a barman and handyman.
Mr Bowers also claims to have set up liaisons between heterosexual actors, including finding women for Desi Arnaz, Lucille Ball's husband.
He said he never took payment for doing so...
