Infamous adult film Deep Throat is to be re-released in US cinemas, reports trade newspaper Variety.
Co-star Harry Reems was convicted of obscenity
The film, which starred the late Linda Lovelace, was banned in 23 states in 1972 because of its risque content.
Lovelace herself later condemned the movie, saying she was forced to appear in it by her husband and manager.
It is being released to coincide with the documentary Inside Deep Throat, which examines the making of the movie which only cost $25,000 (£13,452).
It went on to gross $600m (£323m) worldwide, largely thanks to its sexually explicit reputation.
Las Vegas-based Arrow Productions, which owns the film rights, said it hoped to have a number of copies ready for release by 18 February.
Five of the prints will be edited to allow an R rating, which would allow it to be viewed by children under 17 if accompanied by an adult.
Inside Deep Throat has been given an NC-17 rating, meaning only over-17s can see it.
The film caused such outrage when it was released that co-star Harry Reems was convicted of obscenity in 1976.
A prolific porn star, he faced a potential five-year jail term but the conviction was overturned after the likes of Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty came to his defence.
The UK also banned Deep Throat for 28 years, with it only being passed uncut in 2000.
