Gawker outs director of "Innocence of Muslims" as softcore porn director

A reasonably big scoop from Adrian Chen at Gawker: "The anti-Islam film that's set off a firestorm in the Middle East was directed by a 65-year-old schlock director named Alan Roberts, we've confirmed. He's the creative vision behind softcore porn classics like The Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood" And related, more of the actors in this film are coming out to give press interviews claiming they were duped. At least one of them has a string of porn credits to his name. More: Boing Boing news archive for "Innocence of Muslims."


  1. After reading the link, I kind of feel bad if his name is getting outed like this when he may not have anything to do with the film’s true intent. He’ll be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life.

  2. I think that I may have seen The Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood.  Yeah, it only has a 2.9 out of 10 rating, but it has Adam West, Richard Deacon and Phil Silvers in it.

    1. I saw the version where she went to Washington in the 70s. Let me clarify that I saw it in my early teens during the early 90s.

      Maybe The Happy Hooker ties us all closer than Kevin Bacon. I think Google may need to change some things.

    1. Hating assholes is our right, too… even when those assholes are shielded by laws that manifest precisely the tolerance they so despise, as they desperately try to burn the world to the ground.

      The religious extremists who made the film, the religious extremists burning down cities over it, and the concern trolls trying to conflate freedom of expression with immunity from moral responsibility are all three categories of oxygen thieves that crap all over humanity. 

      1. As far as moral responsibility goes, I’m going to suggest that people who have tried to use a book, movie, or song as an excuse for their violence are solely responsible for their own choices and actions.  Judas Priest, Catcher in the Rye, or even this stupid and crass “movie” don’t make people hurt other people.  That is a choice.

          1. I’m hardly Ayn Rand for suggesting that “the movie made me do it” is not an acceptable excuse for murder. It is a petty, crude, and hateful movie, but I can’t agree that it is so powerful that reasonable people can’t not kill each other over it.

          2. Logically that still points to the people using this insignificant video to form mobs and incite violence.

            You should really be looking at the Glen Becks of Egypt to point your finger at, not some youtube junk.

  3. Hard to believe. I mean I’ve actually seen this guy’s films and they’re bad but not nearly as shitty as the trailer for that hateful agitprop. The story of this thing just keeps getting stranger and stranger.
