Conventional Filmmakers Who Made Adult Films


Gary Graver

Prolific filmmaker Gary Graver collaborated as a cinematographer with Orson Welles (F is for Fake, The Orson Welles Show, The Other Side of the Wind), B-movie king Roger Corman, and Ron Howard, but he led a double life as a pornographer. Directing over 100 hardcore films under the pseudonym “Robert McCallum,” (many of them deemed classics) Graver worked with the esteemed Welles on his 1975 hardcore feature 3 A.M. The movie features a lesbian shower scene edited by the Citizen Kane director. AVN’s Mark Kernes stated that Graver’s “legacy in the adult industry is on a par with the bulk of his Hollywood accomplishments.” Graver was inducted into AVN’s Hall of Fame.
