Cash Markman, aka Bill Dollars, aka Frank Marks, aka Penny Nichols, is a pornographic movie writer, director, and producer. He started as a writer, in 1986, with the X-rated parody The Sheets of San Francisco. Over the next ten years, Markman wrote over 500 scripts for “adult movie” directors, such as Paul Thomas, Scotty Fox, Jim Enright, and Kelly Holland. These movies were often parodies, with titles like A Nightmare on Porn Street, When Larry Ate Sally, and Sex Trek: the Next Penetration. His script for My Bare Lady, an X-rated musical, won the XRCO Award for Best Screenplay in 1989.
In 1996, Markman began directing and producing his own scripts, with more than 300 movies released by 2010, for companies such as Vivid Entertainment, Wicked Pictures, and Penthouse. Parodies continued to be a favorite for Markman, with AVN Award Best Sex Comedy nominees Goldenbush, Swinging in the Rain, Missionary Position: Impossible, Sex Trek: the Final Orgasm, Shagnet, American Sex Idol, and Dancing With the Porn Stars, among others.[dead link]
In 2002, Markman wrote, directed, and produced Bad Influence, the movie that introduced Dick Smothers, Jr., son of comedian Dick Smothers of the Smothers Brothers, as an X-rated performer.
