Harry Reems, whose starring role in Deep Throat in 1972 made him Americas first bona fide male porn star and whose life, more than most, embodied the time-honored American narrative of fame, failure and redemption died on Tuesday in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was 65.

one of the all time greats- he will be sorely missed....
Too bad that he didn’t get a chance to serve in the Obama Administration, he would have raised the moral standards by an order of magnitude.
Bill Clinton is no longer jealous.
It’s a shame he didn’t make it to 69!
I was not a fan of his work and I never saw Deep Throat. But the man served this country in the US Marine Corp and later in life converted to Christianity; two redeeming qualities in spite of “acting”.
Nixon had to see deep throat 3 times before he could get it down Pat
When I heard this story via ABC news while listening to the Savage Nation when in another room , somewhat distracted at the time , I thought Harry Reid had died !
(I’d bet it never happened).
Same job description....
and later in life converted to Christianity;
A big loss
Question.....how are they going to be able to close the coffin?
Heard he did more than just a few times
LOL, we should be so lucky.
I remember when it was first showing in Orlando at some obscure porno theater on SOBT.
Local news was showing the long lines. Can’t remember if any of those in line were interviewed on camera.
With all of the publicity a buddy and I went to see it. I don’t recall much as I was coming off a back injury and was pretty medicated. I don’t think the film took itself too seriously.
I do recall one scene, which seemed funny at the time. Some character had been trying to make time with a girl. She kept telling him she would only have a man with a 9” member. Finally, near the end, he calls her and says he’s found a way to meet her standards. He’s got a doctor that will remove 3”.
What’s this? Finally! A job opening in the Great Obama Depression!? I’m available! Look at me! (Pictures at 11)
