    The 1979 film Caligula is probably the most prestigious porno to ever hit blockbuster cinemas. The production behind the film was in constant disarray. The scriptwriter backed out because the director kept changing his script to add more orgies, phallic imagery, and female nudity. What's even crazier is that the film's primary funder snuck into the movie set with a small crew to film even more hardcore sex scenes which were later edited into the film.
