Porn movie maker Gerard Damiano has died. He was 80.

The director of 1972 adult movie Deep Throat passed away in Miami, Florida after suffering from a stroke last month (Sep08).

The movie was the first pornographic picture to be shown in cinemas and made an estimated $600 million.

His son, Gerard Damiano Jr, says, "He was a filmmaker and an artist and we thought of him as such. Even though we weren't allowed to see his movies, we knew he was a movie maker and we were proud of that." (LJ/WNWCCB/ZN)
