Cash Markman, a.k.a. Bill Dollars, Frank Marks, and 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.[citation needed] 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.[citation needed] These movies were often parodies, with titles like A Nightmare on Porn Street, When Larry Ate Sally, Super Hornio Brothers, 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.[1]

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.[2]

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.[citation needed]

In 2006, Markman was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame.[3]

As of 2010, primarily in the categories of Best Writer, Best Director, and Best Picture, Markman has been nominated for 35 Adult Video News Awards, winning two.[1]
