Marilyn Chambers (April 22, 1952 – April 12, 2009) was an American pornographic actress, exotic dancer, and vice-presidential candidate. She was perhaps best known for her 1972 hardcore film debut Behind the Green Door.

Early life

Marilyn Chambers was reportedly but unconfirmably born Marilyn Ann Briggs in Providence, Rhode Island, and raised in Westport, Connecticut in a middle-class household. Her father was in advertising and her mother was a nurse. She was the youngest of three children, including a brother, Martin Briggs, and a sister, Jann Smith. Chambers attended Burr Farms Elementary School, Hillspoint Elementary School, Long Lots Junior High School, and Staples High School. Her father tried to discourage her from pursuing a modeling career, citing brutal competition. Chambers said in 2005, "When I was about 16 I learned how to write my mother’s name on notes to get out of school. And then I'd take the train into the city to go to auditions". This initiative while in high school landed her some modeling assignments and a small role in the film The Owl and the Pussycat (1970), which starred Barbra Streisand and in which Chambers was credited as Evelyn Lang.


Her parents were not impressed, so she moved to Los Angeles, California for more work. She did not receive any roles except for a low-budget film, writer-director-producer Sean S. Cunningham's Together (1970), in which she appeared nude. She left Los Angeles for San Francisco, California, where she held several jobs, including work as a topless model and a bottomless dancer. During her early career, perhaps her most visible modeling job was as the cover girl on the Ivory Snow soap box, posing as the mother holding the baby under the tag line "99 & 44/100% pure".

Chambers saw an advertisement for a casting call and rushed to the audition, only to find it was for a pornographic film. She was about to leave when producers Artie and Jim Mitchell noticed her resemblance to Cybill Shepherd and agreed a wholesome blond actress was needed for the film. Chambers, who was initially ambivalent about starring in Behind the Green Door, asked the Mitchell brothers for both a $25,000 salary and a percentage of the gross expecting they would never agree. After filming concluded, she informed them that she was "the Ivory Snow Girl"; the Mitchells capitalized on this by billing her as the "99 and 44/100% pure" girl. Procter & Gamble quickly dropped her after discovering her double life as an adult-film actress. Nearly every adult film she made following this incident featured a cameo of her Ivory Snow box.

In the film, Chambers has sex with the well-endowed African-American actor Johnny Keyes. She also fainted at the end of one scene lasting over 45 minutes. The porn industry and viewing public were shocked by the then-taboo spectacle of a white woman having sex with a black man. Chambers' parents reportedly refused to talk to her for several years after the film's release, but eventually reconciled with her. In 1977, Chambers won the starring role in film director David Cronenberg's low-budget Canadian movie Rabid. However, her adult film career made Hollywood studios nervous,[citation needed] and she was unable successfully to move to mainstream films. She continued appearing in porn films for Naughty America and MILFhunter.

In a 2004 interview, Chambers said "My advice to somebody who wants to go into adult films is: Absolutely not! It's heart-breaking. And it's really not ... (she searches for words, sounding emotional) ... it leaves you kind of empty. So have a day job and don't quit it".

Independent films

Near the end of her career, Chambers appeared primarily in independent films, including her last role in Solitaire. Chambers claimed that the more laid-back pace of these roles suited her as "there's a lot less pressure on you to perform [and] you don't have to be young and skinny." Among these were Bikini Bistro, Angel of H.E.A.T. (with Mary Woronov), Rated X, and Party Incorporated.

Singing career

Chambers had some chart success with the disco single "Benihana" in 1976, produced by Michael Zager on the Roulette Records label.


Her first marriage to Doug Chapin ended after the release of Behind the Green Door. During her 1975-1985 marriage to porn producer/director/manager Chuck Traynor, Chambers continued in both mainstream and porn films. After that marriage ended, Chambers married her third husband, truck driver Tom Taylor. She gave birth to their daughter, McKenna Marie Taylor, in 1991, before that marriage also ended in divorce.

Efforts in politics

In the 2004 United States presidential election, Chambers ran for Vice President on the Personal Choice Party ticket, a quasi-libertarian party. She received a total of 946 votes. In the 2008 United States presidential election, she was again Charles Jay's running mate, this time as an alternate write-in candidate to his primary national Boston Tea Party running mate Thomas L. Knapp in the states of Arkansas, Hawaii, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Utah.


On April 12, 2009, Chambers was found dead in her mobile home in Santa Clarita, California. She was discovered by her 17-year-old daughter, McKenna Marie Taylor. The Coroner's autopsy revealed that Chambers died of a cerebral hemorrhage and aneurysm related to heart disease. Pain killer hydrocodone (Vicodin, etc) and anti-depressant Citalopram were found in her blood stream but not enough to cause death.

Fictional portrayals

In 2000, Tracy Hutson played Chambers in the cable television biographical film about the Mitchell brothers' film, Rated X.
