In 1972 — before the internet, before the adult film explosion — “DDeep Throat” was a phenomenon: the first scripted adult theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace. Escaping a strict religious family, Linda Susan Boreman discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor, who coercived her into the porn industry. As Linda Lovelace, she became an international sensation — less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio. After struggling to break free from Traynor, whose endless abuse nearly killed her, Lovelace made it her life’s mission to fight violence against women. Extras: Behind-the-scenes featurette.
