The seamy story of a family-run porno business illuminates the underside of the city by the bay.
Brothers Jim and Artie Mitchell had a strange take on the family business--their venture was making porno films. But no one can argue with the results. They produced breakthrough films like Deep Throat and Behind the Green Door.
But their million-dollar empire came crashing down when Jim tried to convince Artie to enter treatment for his consuming drug and alcohol problems. CITY CONFIDENTIAL details the tragic events of that night, which ended with Artie's death. The case captured the attention of the city as Jim assembled a high-powered team of lawyers to fend off the murder charges. See how the trial essentially became an attack on Artie's lifestyle, and examine the controversial verdict that saw Jim back on the streets in just a few years, despite universal acknowledgement that he killed his own brother.
CITY CONFIDENTIAL: SAN FRANCISCO is a detailed look at an unusual case that galvanized a city and toppled a porno empire.
