REST IN PEACE
Porn star Harry Reems.  The star of the 1972 classic Deep Throat, he was the first porn star to ever be convicted of obscenity.  He eventually won on appeal thanks to the help of famous defense attorney Alan Dershowitz.  He tried to become a mainstream actor, and was originally cast to play Coach Calhoun in Grease, before controversy over his porn past forced producers to replace him with Sid Caesar.  He eventually retired from porn in 1987.  Two years later he got married, converted to Christianity and has led a mostly quiet life, popping up every once in awhile for an interview about his past.  He was only 65 and died from pancreatic guy.  He was a nice guy and will be missed. Can read more about him and see some pictures of him in action here.
