A genuine icon of the 70s'..and certainly reluctantly so.
Linda Boreman Marchiano was really put thru it! I read her second book after having seen her on a variety of Donahue's and the like.

I'm with ya Vickie - pretty heartless. What was she, 54? Not too young, but still too young for anyone to go, even a porn star.

Linda claimed that if you were watching Deep Troat, then you were watching her being raped, true or not, I tend to give women the edge on abuse claims. Her death in a car crash at 53 really does not deserve a flip comment and someone has just been added to my IGNORE list.

I heard (only a rumor for all I know) that her ex-husband (?) held her at gunpoint so she would make that movie.

Sad...

A number of female porn stars came forth to say that Lovelace's alleged coercion did not apply to THEM, thus showing that it was no basis for blasting the porn industry in general. I also find it interesting that she seemed to have a lot of interest in capitalizing on the "Lovelace" name even with movies that wouldn't have involved her husband, such as Linda Lovelace for President and even long after she stopped making movies. This tells me that as much as anything else, she did what she did to keep what little fame she had left.

I think it was on Playboy's The Story Of X, a history of porn documentary, she was shown in many interviews after the movie was made about how proud she was, etc. and then went to the eighties where she was fighting against the industry and tried to have Deep Throat 'banned'. Its hard for me to tell if she was in fact forced into it or later regretted her work in the industry.
