Anyone around in the 1970's, whether a teen or adult, at one time or another heard about Linda Lovelace and her role in the porn movie, Deep Throat, shot for pennies (as movies go) and whose quality was bad. Yet, despite this, the movie made millions. Much of it going to others and not its star, Linda. The movie itself was poorly written, no plot, and the actresses were not film stars whatsoever. The film looks like a student's project for UCLA film wannabes.

However, it became America's first widely accepted porn movie for mainstream audiences. It was in theaters and it was most popular at drive-ins. The movie was just about sex and more sex in various positions but the most famous was Lovelace's deep throat for oral copulation even for large penis'. It was a vivid film but grainy. The movie's title, Deep Throat, became a slang term for oral copulation. After its success, other porn movies flooded the drive-in's, like, Behind the Green Door.

However, Lovelace's success was fleeting and she was abused quite a bit, raped, forced to have sex with five men and beaten. She suffered from a self-esteem issue and sought to please others to be accepted. She never had much attention and this all motivated her to do what she did.

Lovelace, the movie, stars Amanda Seyfried, Peter Saarsgard, Sharon Stone, Adam Brody and James Franco, is a bio of her story from obscurity to porn star to a woman who finally takes control of her life before she died in a car crash in 2002. Kate Hudson was originally offered the role.

The movie is due out in March 2013 and cost $10 million to make.
