The film is a celebration of the casting profession, highlighting its previously unsung role in film history while also serving as an elegy to the lost era of the New Hollywood. It focuses on casting pioneer Marion Dougherty, an iconoclast whose exquisite taste, tenacity and gut instincts brought a new kind of actor to the screen that would mark the end of the old studio system and help to usher in this revolutionary new period. The film draws a line through the last half century to show us the profession’s evolution from studio system type-casting to the rise of large ensemble films populated with unique and diverse casts.

Considéré comme le film le plus rentable de tous les temps, Gorge profonde fut bien plus qu'une curiosité pour adultes et une réussite financière. Sorti en 1972, au moment où les Etats-Unis découvraient les mouvements pour la libération sexuelle et les valeurs de la contre-culture, ce film au contenu sexuellement explicite déclencha une tempête sociale et politique sans précédent. Gorge profonde devint un phénomène culturel majeur, dont l'impact se ressent encore aujourd'hui. Plus de trente ans après les scandales provoqués par ce classique du cinéma porno, le documentaire Inside Deep throat examine l'incroyable abîme entre les modestes intentions des créateurs du film et l'héritage qu'ils ont involontairement laissé.

Pee-wee Herman is a puer aeternus with a pimped-out bicycle that he treasures and that his neighbor, Francis Buxton, covets. A bike shop employee, Dottie, has a crush on Pee-wee, but he does not reciprocate it. Pee-wee's bike gets stolen while at the mall. He confronts Francis, who has an air-tight alibi. Pee-wee then offers a $10,000 reward for his bike. Francis, who did indeed pay to have someone steal the bike, is frightened by Pee-wee's relentlessness and then pays to have it sent away. After holding a meeting, Pee Wee angrily shouts Dottie down while she is giving suggestions to him and refused to admit he needed help from Dottie while telling her off. Now mad, Pee Wee gives Dottie a furious "I DON'T NEED ANYBODY!" Desperate, Pee-wee visits a psychic, Madam Ruby, who lies to him, claiming that the bike is in the basement of the Alamo. Pee-wee hitchhikes to Texas, getting rides from a fugitive, Mickey, and from a ghostly trucker, Large Marge.
