Jacques Scandelari (July 5, 1943 in Dinard, France – June 2, 1999 in Paris, France) was a French film director, screenwriter and producer. He also produced gay pornographic films, under the pseudonym Marvin Merkins.
Jacques Scandelari gained notoriety for his second film Beyond Love and Evil that was loosely adapted from Marquis de Sade’s play Philosophy in the Bedroom.
In 1977, Scandelari moved to New York City, where he produced the now famous gay pornographic film New York City Inferno. The film is notorious for its grim, documentary-style and its authorized use of songs of the Village People.
