RIP Marilyn Chambers
Marilyn Chambers, the porn actress who shot to notoriety back in the day when it was revealed that she was the cover model on the Ivory Snow box has died. She was 57.
Chambers made the most of her fame by managing to appear in several mainstream films including David Cronenberg's over-the-top yarn, Rabid.
Her porn stardom started in earnest when she appeared in 1972's Behind The Green Door, a film that garnered a lot of attention from the mainstream press.
Like her male counterpart, Jack Wrangler (who died last week), Chambers never apologized for, or denied her porn past ... as a matter of fact, she continued working in the business up into the late 90's.
