PHOTOS: Marilyn and JFK, Rock Hudson's Gay Confession, Lana Turner: The Fred Otash Files Otash was the Anthony Pellicano of his era, a notorious Hollywood gumshoe who charged hundreds of dollars per day and spied on everyone from Hudson to Marilyn Monroe to John F. A big, burly man who left the Los Angeles Police Department in 1955 after falling out with Chief William H.Parker, he was the go-to guy for some of Hollywood's top attorneys, including Melvin Belli and Jerry Giesler, and operated from the mid-1950s until he lost his private investigator's license in 1965.The story concerns a hapless civil servant who gets more than he bargained for when he moves into an apartment with a gay fashion student and finds himself on the catwalk. See full summary » A bullied and demoralized gay student at an all-boys school uses a magical flower derived from Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream' to turn many in his community gay, including a comely rugby player for himself.
Mike Wallace called him the "most amoral" man he had ever interviewed, and Robert Towne used him for inspiration when he wrote his Oscar-winning screenplay for 1974's , about a morally dubious private eye played by Jack Nicholson. "But he was one of them." Born in 1922, the 6-foot-2 Otash grew up in Methuen, Mass., but left home to serve in the Marines before joining the LAPD.
After exiting the police force, he set up the Fred Otash Detective Bureau on North Laurel Avenue in Hollywood, where he worked as a freelancer and "fact verifier" for notorious L. celebrity tattle magazine 's outing of Liberace and a gay pajama party with Tab Hunter.
It's a story of a gay twenty something who has a series of incedents ends up finding himself and maybe someone to share it with.
The cast was excellent I especially liked the part played by his Aunt. no Violence, no unnecessary sex (the beginning has a funny sex scene but good) scenes just a well written, good acted gay comedy From beginning to end, The real feel good movie of the year!
Flynn also regularly labels Hillary Clinton, Saturday Night Live, CNN, Sen.
Bernie Sanders, President Obama, and others as communists.The son of top Donald Trump adviser and retired Army Lt. Michael Flynn regularly shares conspiracy theories, expletive-filled posts, and racially insensitive sentiments on Twitter and Facebook, a CNN KFile review of his social media presence reveals. Flynn, shared stories alleging top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin had a connection to the Muslim Brotherhood, pushed a conspiracy theory that Sen.Marco Rubio was a closeted homosexual who abused cocaine, and repeatedly used expletives to attack Trump's political opponents.He was "unreliable and unruly," says John Buntin in his 2010 nonfiction work ), who met Otash several times before his death. I got what I could, and he died." Otash is a recurrent figure in Ellroy's work and the subject of his recent e-book , in which a fictionalized version of the detective looks back on his life from "Pervert Purgatory" and describes himself as a "rogue cop, private eye, shakedown artist. Here, the truth is far more entertaining than fiction." In an attempt to counter Ellroy's view (and perhaps anticipate an even more negative portrayal in a pilot about the private eye that Ellroy is developing for FX), Colleen and Westphal recently allowed this reporter access to several of the files and an unpublished book Otash wrote about Marilyn Monroe in which he claims he overheard Monroe having sex with JFK. We wired up her phone because it started looking stupid with a suction cup." Otash listened in on Marilyn having sex with Kennedy when he was watching Lawford's house in Malibu, allegedly while working for Howard Hughes, who was seeking general information with which to discredit the Democrats."He did a lot of bad things [including] revealing secret details, mostly sexual in nature, about the lives of celebrated people, causing them to endure personal shame, emotional hardship, financial privation -- and doing this for a living. He was always talking about bugging [JFK brother-in-law] Peter Lawford's beach pad and getting the goods on Kennedy. PHOTOS: The Lost Marilyn Monroe Images Among the highlights: "Marilyn wanted a mini-phone listening device," Otash claims in the notes, adding that he spied on her even while she was paying him to install recording equipment so that she could tape her own phone calls. "When the original Lawford house was wired, Monroe was not part of the plan," Otash says in the files.I was lucky enough to see this flick at the 2006 Puerto vallarta Film Festival this year.
