Longtime pornographic actress Marilyn Chamers died yesterday at age 56. Chambers helped launch the modern "adult" film industry in 1972 when she was paid $25,000 and a slice of the gross to star in Behind the Green Door. The Los Angeles Times obituary also notes that Chambers, who was an Ivory Snow model when she appeared in the film, is responsible for the clause now in modeling contracts for products that warrants that the model has never posed nude.
Her first starring film s best known among Contracts professors, of course, as marking the only screen appearance of actor Hadley V. Baxendale.
