One of Hollywood's most abysmal scandals is dug up six decades later.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (aka MGM) was the world's most powerful and revered movie studio in 1937. Yet with all the success it had during the 1930s, with stars like Clark Gable and classic films like 'Tarzan', MGM's biggest story may have been one of scandal and rape if not for one of the biggest cover-ups in Hollywood history.

Director David Stenn had questions that needed answering when he stumbled upon the story of Patricia Douglas, a 20-year-old dancer who was raped after being tricked into attending a MGM stag party for visiting salesmen. With 'Girl 27,' Stenn attempts to bring Old Hollywood's dark side to the silver screen.

'Girl 27' was screened at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, and played in theaters last summer. Watch the film in full, or snag it onto your own site, from SnagFilms.com
