Harry Reems, who starred in the classic 1972 pornographic feature hit Deep Throat, died in Salt Lake City on Tuesday. He was 65. Reems was a Marine before acting in off-off-Broadway plays and starting in adult films. He was hired as a lighting director on Deep Throat but took over the lead role of Dr. Young when the actor originally cast did not turn up to work. The film became an international phenomenon, earning some $600M and a place in cinema history. Lovelace, about Deep Throat star Linda Lovelace, debuted in Sundance this year; Adam Brody plays Reems in the movie. In 2005, Reems appeared in the documentary Inside Deep Throat, which also had its premiere in Sundance. (more…)
