Real name Mark Raishe. When writing adult movie scripts, he asked to be paid in cash, bringing him the nickname of "Cash," or, as one colleague often called him, "The Cash Man." This, combined with his real first name, led to the pseudonym of Cash Markman and, on rare occasion, as Mark Cashman. For lower budgeted videos, and keeping with a moniker based on currency, he used "Bill Dollars." For movies shot in England, he adapted the screen credit of "Sterling Pounds." When asked to use a female name for Jill Kelly Productions and, later, Penthouse, he opted for "Penny Nichols." For less couples- friendly material, he settled on "Frank Marks," giving a nod to the French frank and the German mark.
