Here is a great quote from Max's story up on HuffPo:
These scenes "really got Phil titillated," Caton told journalist John Judis in 1995. Gramm enthusiastically cut Caton a check for $15,000. Because the film was oversold, however, Caton returned his brother-in-law's money, offering him an investment opportunity in an upcoming feature.He was titillated! The whole thing is kind of titillating, no?
