“Deep Throat” To Be Re-Released

Infamous porn film Deep Throat is set to be re-released in U.S. theatres–33 years after it first hit screens.

The release of the controversial Linda Lovelace movie, which was banned at
the time in 23 U.S. states, coincides with the premiere of the documentary Inside Deep Throat, which goes on limited release on Friday.

The original film, which was made in six days for $25,000 and has
grossed over $600 million, is not expected to be ready until at
least Feb. 18.

The documentary, co-produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Brian Grazer, shows
how Deep Throat popularized a form of sexual pleasure, previously considered
taboo.

But President Richard Nixon’s administration sent in the FBI to close down
screenings, and took legal action against the film’s director, Jerry Damiano,
and stars.
