Porn Again

First trailer for upcoming film about Deep Throat "icon" (as they bill her) Linda Lovelace just out--there are a couple biopics in the works, this is the one titled Lovelace with Amanda Seyfried (and the likes of James Franco, Chris Noth and Chloe Sevigny).  James Franco as Hugh Hefner!  And apparently they include the famous Sammy Davis Jr. incident.  Okay, no jokes about it maybe being "overblown."   I certainly am old enough to have lived through that era, though I imagine many today know "Deep Throat" only as a Watergate-related figure.  Lovelace was manipulated and exploited and became, at least briefly, a feminist heroine for speaking out.  I presume the movie will end there--without the coda when she attacked feminists and voluntarily returned to porny pictorials.
