As the star of the first full-length pornographic film, Deep Throat,
Linda Lovelace became a household name in the 1970s. But there was
reportedly a dark story behind her fame. She was often abused by her
mother growing up, and her first husband forced her into porn. Once the
industry’s biggest star, Lovelace later stood up against porn,
testifying about its dangers before Congress. She died on April 22,
2002, in Denver, Colorado.
Linda Lovelace was born Linda Susan Boreman in New York City on January
10, 1949. As the star of the first full-length pornographic film, Deep
Throat, Lovelace became a household name in the United States in the
1970s. But there was reportedly a dark story behind her fame; she was
often abused by her mother growing up, according to an article in the
In her early twenties, Lovelace began dating Chuck Traynor. She married
him in part to escape her family, but ended up in an even more harrowing
situation. Traynor reportedly forced her into doing pornography. She
later claimed that he controlled every aspect of her life and threatened
her with bodily harm if she did not perform or tried to leave him.
Traynor denied her charges.
Her most well-known film, Deep Throat, was released in 1972 and took the
nation by storm. Lovelace starred with Harry Reems, a seasoned porn
actor. The thin plot revolved around a woman who goes to see a doctor to
sort out her sexual frustration. Unlike other porn films of the time, it
tried to incorporate humor alongside the sexual aspects of the film.
Despite its triple X rating, it became popular with mainstream audiences
and eventually earned around $600 million. Not bad for a film that cost
$25,000 to make. But Lovelace reportedly saw no money from Deep Throat
and said that her husband received around $1,250 for the project.
While Lovelace was frustrated professionally, she found some personal
happiness around this time. She married Larry Marchiano, and he was by
her side as she told her story in Ordeal (1980), which provided details
about her abusive relationship with Traynor. In the book,
Lovelace said that Traynor kept as a prisoner and that he forced to
perform obscene sex acts often by pointing a gun at her as a form of
intimidation. He also made her have sex with other men for money,
according to her book.
Once the porn industry’s biggest star, Lovelace stood up against
pornography, testifying about its dangers before Congress and in other
venues. She also shared her hellish experiences in numerous forums,
including the book Out of Bondage (1986). But financially she and her
young family struggled. Marchiano had been unemployed for a time and had
a number of low-paying jobs. Her health also suffered. Lovelace needed a
new liver after hers was damaged by hepatitis that she may have
contracted from a 1970 blood transfusion, according to an article in the
Los Angeles Times. She received a transplant in 1987.
In 1990, Lovelace and her family moved to Denver, Colorado. The couple
split in 1996, but she stayed in the area and worked locally. She also
began appearing at memorabilia shows and received a warm welcome from
fans, according to The New York Times. Lovelace died in Denver,
Colorado, on April 22, 2002, of injuries sustained in a car accident on
April 3 of that year. Her ex-husband and their two children were by her
side when she was taken off life support.
Today, Lovelace is credited by many as pornography's most famous star,
as well as one of the most respected performers in the industry. A film
about Lovelace's life and career, entitled Lovelace and starring Amanda
Seyfried as the famous porn star, is set to be released in 2013.
Directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman teamed up for the cinematic
project, which is based on the screenplay by Andy Bellin.
