Remembering Harry Reems 1947 - 2013

Actor Harry Reems, who died Tuesday at age 65, was born Herbert Streicher, but he became "Harry Reems" in the 1972 cult classic pornographic film, Deep Throat. Reems appeared in approximately 140 feature-length sexploitation and hardcore films, including The Devil in Miss Jones (1973), Wet Rainbow (1974) and Sex Wish (1976). He was the Narrator of the 1982 TV movie, Mae West, starring Ann Jillian, and after leaving the porn industry in 1989, he moved to Utah and eventually became a real-estate agent. Reems was also offered the role of Coach Calhoun in the 1978 movie musical, Grease, but producers replaced him with Sid Caesar at the last moment for fear that his adult movie notoriety would hurt the film's box office.

Below you can watch Reems in a 1976 interview, Deep Throat and an edited trailer for Sex Wish.
