RIP Harry Reems

Harry Reems died yesterday of pancreatic cancer at the age of 69. I didn't really follow his career, but he seemed like an affable chap in the documentary Inside Deep Throat (he was in his "Christian real estate" period by that time). I've long been curious about the anti-Vietnam war "roughie" Forced Entry, mostly because Stephen Thrower seems pretty impressed with it in Nightmare USA, reading it as a no-holds-barred statement on the viciousness of the Vietnam war - but what I've seen of it is pretty hard to take; it was, according to Reems, the one film he regretted doing...
