Ann Farmer, who got all of $20 to $25 for each raw film she flaunted her femininity in, had been procured for the parts by none other than the Head Man himself. This turned out to be 52-year-old Daniel Malone, an innocuous looking fellow who by daylight was none other than the deputy chief inspector for the Department of Water Supply!
Malone had held this job for 30 years. And the city was paying him $6,400 a year when it discovered he was sometimes making as much as that in a single week at his homework!
The pornography peddler and his eager assistants didn’t need much equipment — just a good camera and a couple of lights. Many of their torrid epics, as in the case of Ann Farmer, were shot right in the girl’s apartment Or a $10-a-night hotel room would do just as well. The films were then developed in a garage behind Malone’s home.
When they raided the garage, police found over $500,000 worth of pornographic movies on the spot.
