Harry Reems passed away yesterday at the age of 65 from Pancreatic Cancer according to his friend Don Schenk. In 1972 Reems starred in the Deep Throat, the first adult movie to be made for the big screen. Two years later he was arrested for conspiracy to distribute obscenity across state lines because of that film. Then in 1976 he was convicted for the crime, but the conviction was overturned a year later.
He spent the next decade doing mostly adult films, hundreds of them, before retiring from the business in the mid ’80s and settling in Utah.
So today honor his legacy and watch Deep Throat as a big FU to “The Man” who tried to bring him down.
