Ivan Nagy is a Hungarian-born film director and convicted bookmaker.

A loud mouthed profane man, Nagy directed episodes of Starsky and Hutch and The Hitchhiker as well as nine TV movies. When his Hollywood career tanked, he went to work for Madam Alex, helping her manage her business. Nagy had many friends in Hollywood, including former Tristar head Jeff Sagansky. Nagy surrounded himself with pretty girl and drugs.

Nagy was arrested in May, 1991 on six felony counts of bookmaming, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, and cultivation of marijuana. He was only convicted of bookmaking and placed on probation. (pg. 392)

Nagy and Fleiss were regular guests at Michael Nathanson's home for holiday parties. "Nagy is a pig - horrible," one source told Hit & Run. "I would see him at Michael's house for football games. Heidi and Nagy would be there amidst all these executive types."

It was assumed that Nagy took care of Michael's needs for drugs and hookers. Copies of Michael's bank records show he wrote several personal checks to Nagy: one for $750 on February 23, 1989, and one for $500 on October 24, 1990.
