    [SIZE=-2]FILMOGRAPHY AS ACTOR[/SIZE]
    Deep Throat (15-Nov-1972) Herself








    Linda Boreman, who starred as Linda Lovelace in the 1972 pornographic film "Deep Throat" and later became an anti-porn advocate, died from injuries she suffered in a car crash. She was 53.

    Boreman was taken to Denver Health Medical Center with massive trauma and internal injuries after the accident, hospital spokeswoman Sara Spaulding said. She was taken off life support just moments before she passed.

    Boreman's ex-husband, Larry Marchiano, said he and their two adult children were at the hospital when she died.

    "Everyone might know her as something else, but we knew her as mom and as Linda," Marchiano said. "We divorced five years ago, but she was still my best friend."

    The family moved to Colorado in 1990 and the two divorced in 1996 after 22 years of marriage.

    Boreman claimed her first husband forced her into pornography at gunpoint. They divorced in 1973.

    Their relationship disintegrated into a life of violence, rape, prostitution and pornography, according to her 1980 autobiography, "Ordeal" and her testimony before congressional committees investigating pornography.

    Boreman said she was never paid a penny for "Deep Throat" and her husband only was paid $1,250, though the film grossed a reported $600 million.

    After leaving the industry, she traveled the lecture circuit on a crusade against pornography, speaking at colleges and with prominent feminists.

    "I look in the mirror and I look the happiest I've ever looked in my entire life," she said in a 1997 interview. "I'm not ashamed of my past or sad about it. And what people might think of me, well, that's not real. I look in the mirror and I know that I've survived."

    Boreman was born Jan. 10, 1949, in the Bronx borough of New York City.

    This quote got to me: "Everyone might know her as something else, but we knew her as mom and as Linda," Marchiano said. "We divorced five years ago, but she was still my best friend."

    Yeah I agree that she had a sad life and a tragic death. I was sad when I heard that she died.

    Yes, that was sad. It's easy to forget a lot of these people are somebodys family.
    Try to see the documentary It's called Inside Deep Throat.

    "Inside Deep Throat is a good documentary. And you are right about the public not remembering that these are real people with families and lives. I wonder if her crusading brought her some peace of mind or fulfillment eventually ?

    Saw the documentary and boy was that an eye-opener.....I`ve always admired Linda....even through it all, she didn`t want pity, just for people to be aware....I think she was one class act...

    Our Mayor had to watch it 3 times to decide if DT was obscene. I guess not as they had lines 200 feet long waiting to get in (including my Parents! Gross) and watch it. A Big deal in Iowa.

    I've know a lot of women that have earned a living on the shadier side of life, and they are just like everybody else, some are great and some are ass****s. Linda was class act. Such a horrible way to go for someone that cared so much for other people. RIP.

    What a waste of 80 minutes of life. It sucked (no pun) as a movie.

    That documentary was great, but ultimately sad. It seems that absolutely no one associated with that movie turned out better for the experience.

    Poor Linda Lovelace changed her name and got a job as an office manager. She loved her job. But when her employer found out that she was Linda Lovelace, he dropped kicked her out the front door. It appears that she died sick and pretty much broke.

    I saw it about 15 years ago. It's fine, it's XXX hardcore, shot well for the time. It has a cute plot. The guys are fairly hot for straight porn. It's not slick lie today, but it fits the bill for what you want to do during a porno movie.

    One of my closest girlfriends is a former nude dancer. She is in her 50's now but back "in the day" (like 25 years ago) apparently she had a great body (didn't know her back then) and was struggling to raise her daughter as a single Mom. She exhausted herself doing the normal thing, ie working two jobs, selling Avon and Tupperware on the side, but finally started nude dancing on the advice of another girlfriend.

    She said that for her, it was the perfect job. She could work during the day when her child was at school, and eventually became well-liked enough by the audience that she could really name her own hours. She said that she was making enough in tips that she only had to work a couple of days a week. At least where she worked, management was very protective of her and the other ladies, clients weren't even allowed to come within three feet of them (how they got their tips I don't know) and there was no funny business (prostitution) or other icky stuff on the side (sexual favors for management, etc.).

    So yes, you are right, there are a lot of nice women working to make a living on the shadier side of life. God bless all of them.
    Any day above ground is a good day.

    Anyone read her biography? ("Ordeal"). She certainly went through some crap in her life......I read somewhere that she exaggerated a lot of stuff in the book but I saw her on a talk show once and she swears it was true and it all happened.......

    I read "Ordeal". She made herself out to be a total victim. Her ex-husband denied it all, said he never forced her to do anything. I suspect the truth lies somewhere in-between.

    I just watched Inside Deep Throat. Interesting. I felt so sorry for her in her later life.
    The director, Gerard Damiano, died a few years after this was shot. And of course Dennis Hopper, who narrated.

    I thought she was fired. Linda was fresh faced & sweet. How in the world could Lindsay pull that off? Oooh wait, is the film about the car wreck & not the porn? Cuz I'd totally buy her as fifty something destitute ex porno actress.

    This is an interesting take on the whole thing.
    It's good to read something from a 3rd party.

    http://www.metasex.org/linda.html

    From that I think her husband could have been abusive and did exploit and use her. And it appears that so did the feminists.
    Seems to me that LL could easily be manipulated and that she wasn't happy either making pornos or speaking out against them.
    But it's hard to tell without experiencing it firsthand.

    I saw it when I was like in 7th Grade - I was at my BFF's house at the time and we found her parents stash of porn on Beta!!! LOL! OMG!! We were so freaked out!! We locked the doors and closed the curtains cause we didnt wanna get caught watching it, so every little noise we heard we jumped up and turned the TV off and waited..... Good Times.

    To this day all I have to say to her is "Have a Coke and a Smile" and we starting rolling!!!!

    Speaking of Coke - I wonder if they were a paid sponser back then? You know how now days you have to cover labels and shit if it's not approved ~ I would be curious. Maybe copyright laws weren't so sticked back then...

    That picture of Lindsay reminds me of the photo of Anna Nicole Smith in the body bag.

    Does anyone know how the car accident happened that killed her? Was she driving alone? Was it a single car accident?
