Now a major film starring Steve Coogan. Previously published as Members Only.

For almost forty years, Paul Raymond was one Britain's most scandalous celebrities. Best known as the owner of the world famous Raymond Revuebar, he was a successful theatre impresario, property magnate and porn baron.

With his pencil moustache, gold jewellery and taste for showgirls, Raymond was both the brash personification of nouveau riche vulgarity and exemplar of the entrepreneurial spirit that enabled a poor boy from Liverpool to become Britain's richest man.

'Like 24 Hour Party People, we want to capture the life of an extraordinary man living in extraordinary times' Steve Coogan
