The Rialto Report
If you haven't checked out The Rialto Report, do. It's an amazing, unrivaled collection of "Oral history, audio, photo, and documentary archives from the golden age of adult film in New York, and beyond."
Take, for example, "Deep Throat" shooting locations:
The opening scenes were shot at Handsome Harry’s place. Handsome Harry lived in Fort Lauderdale. He was a bachelor, maybe 28 or 29 years old, a nice gent who lived solo in his ranch-style house with a swimming pool. Most of his waking thoughts turned lightly to love in any season… and swings and orgies. Our crew – and our project – could not have been more welcome.
Handsome Harry never could figure out why after a long hard day in front of the cameras we weren’t all chomping at the bit to swing into a wild orgy.
