Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato are the team behind Inside Deep Throat, a documentary about the porn classic Deep Throat. We talk with them about their movie — and the original, which went from obscurity to popular fame. It also became immensely successful, earning more than $500 million over the years after an initial cost of $25,000.
The 1972 Deep Throat got nationwide attention, transformed the pornography industry, turned Linda Lovelace into a porn star — and led to a crackdown on obscenity. Bailey and Barbato are also the team behind the documentaries The Eyes of Tammy Faye and Monica in Black and White.
