Pornstar Marilyn Chambers Dead at 56

Posted: April 14th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Pornstar Marilyn Chambers Dead at 56Submit Comment
Adult film star Marilyn Chambers, star of hit film "Behind the Green Door," was found dead Sunday at her home in Canyon Country in northern Los Angeles County. She was 56.

Her friend Peggy McGinn said Chambers was found by her 17-year-old daughter and the cause of death has not been determined.

Chambers starred in the 1972 film "Behind the Green Door," directed by the Mitchell brothers; pic was more widely distributed and attracted a more mainstream audience than the usual adult fare.

Born in Providence, RI, Chambers, whose given name was Marilyn Briggs, was once a model for Ivory Snow, although the soap company quickly ended her contract when she became a porn star. She was among the first porn superstars when the stag films of the 1940s through 1960s gave way to the more polished sex films of the 1970s.

After rising to fame with "Behind the Green Door," she starred in dozens of adult films and in several non-adult titles including David Cronenberg's "Rabid" and "My Therapist." She also released a disco single, "Benihana," in 1976.
