1972: The pornographic film "Deep Throat" premieres at the World Theater in New York City. The movie, starring Linda Lovelace (whose real name was Linda Susan Boreman), achieved unprecedented popularity among mainstream audiences and quickly became a pop culture reference, most notably when then–Washington Post managing editor Howard Simons chose the film's title as the pseudonym for a Watergate informant.
