But it wasn’t until New York law enforcement took notice that Deep Throat became a blockbuster. The World Theater was raided three times in a single month that summer. And by the time a New York judge ruled the movie obscene the following spring, the publicity surrounding its legal troubles had helped earn Deep Throat nearly $2 million in the city and made pornography a national obsession. Jackie O. saw it. Johnny Carson referenced it in his monologues. Ralph Blumenthal wrote in the New York Times that Deep Throat had become the “premier topic of cocktail-party and dinner-table conversation”; members of the newsroom staff had viewed it en masse.

Jackie's addiction to playboys and priapic older men sprang from her adoration of her boozing, philandering father, John Vernou Bouvier III. Known as "BlackJack" for his striking dark looks and Valentino manner, he instructed her early on that "all men are rats," and lived up to his aphorism. While visiting her at Farmington, her boarding school, one weekend he casually discussed his conquests and future prospects among the mothers visiting at the same time. Jackie was his favorite daughter and Bradford suggests there was almost an incestuous component to their intense relationship.
Her mother Janet, whom Jackie basically disliked, was a schemer who tried to elevate her pedigree by seeking social approbation and big money. After a bitter divorce from the womanizing Bouvier, she managed to snag the twice divorced, extremely well-heeled Standard Oil heir, Hugh D. Auchincloss. A retiring, mild man with a penchant for pornography, Hughdie, as he was called, was the ultimate WASP: A member of the establishment and a pillar of Washington and Newport society, with several children and two large estates, including Hammersmith Farm in Newport, Rhode Island, where Jack and Jackie's wedding reception was held.
