Lobby advertisement for Gerard Damiano’s legendary porn movie Deep Throat, which launched the mainstream upper middle class theatrical interest in porn later known as “porno chic”, during the Golden Age of pornography throughout the 1970’s and early 1980’s.

Starring Linda Lovelace, the film was seen and talked about by celebrities, mainstream actors and filmmakers, and countless everyday people. The subject of multiple obscenity trials, as well as the Washington Post’s code name for the Watergate scandal informant, Deep Throat is ubiquitous in American pop culture.

A rare artifact from a landmark porn film.
