It was a $25,000 movie that became a $600 million phenomenon. It caused and administration to declare war on freedom. It turned buying a ticket into an act of revolution. Generally considered the most profitable motion picture of all time, the 1972 adult film Deep Throat was more than a titillating curiosity and a huge moneymaker. Released at the very moment when the nation's movements for sexual liberation, equal rights and counter-cultural values were reaching a fever pitch, this sexually explicit film unexpectedly became the flashpoint for an unprecedented social and political firestorm--a major cultural phenomenon whose impact continues to affect us today.
