Very sorry to hear of the passing of Harry Reems, yesterday, from complications of pancreatic cancer; he was 65.
Today’s screening: DEEP THROAT, THE DEVIL IN MISS JONES, THOSE YOUNG GIRLS (with an underage Traci Lords), and INSIDE DEEP THROAT
Today’s missed opportunity: Reems was originally cast as the track coach in GREASE, but was replaced for fear that his notoriety would cause the film’s box office in the South to be jeopardized.
Today’s quote: “Linda Lovelace and Gerry Damiano were witnesses for the government… They were granted immunity. I was not. They took the stand, pointed at me and said ‘Yes, that’s the guy.’”
Today’s book club: THE OTHER HOLLYWOOD: THE UNCENSORED ORAL HISTORY OF THE PORN FILM INDUSTRY by Legs McNeil
Sleep well, sweet Prince…
