Now this would not normally be on a LumberJock Forum Posting But I have a little insite that I’ve never told to anyone.

I lived in New Jersey and traveled quite often to Kansas City on Business. The quite often was Sunday to KC and Friday to NJ for a couple of years. Because of the frequent Flyer miles I quite ofter flew First Class.

On one of my 6:00 Am flights on Monday morning my seat mate was Shecky Greene a Las Vegas Comedian. he had finished a gig in Atlantic City on Sunday night and was flying home to Las Vegas.

He leaned over to me as everyone was getting on the airplane and said that gal back in the last row of seats in first class was Marilyn Chambers she was in Porno file “Behind the Green Door”. I stood up and fiddled with some overhead luggage so I could check her out. When I sat down I asked Shecky who was the man with her. He said “He’s a nobody, He’s her husband.” I had not seen the film and I’ve still not seen it so I can’t comment on the film.

The announcement today. Marilyn Chambers, the pretty Ivory Snow soap girl who helped bring hard-core adult films into the mainstream consciousness when she starred in the explicit 1972 movie “Behind the Green Door,” has died at 56.

Karson I couldn’t help myself and I Googled Marilyn Chambers. I had no idea who she was but now I’m sad she’s gone. Quite a looker! I read a little about her and saw that she certainly opened the doors for others. HEHEHE

Darn – I must have missed that movie. I am betting a lot of folks are googling Marilyn Chambers and seeing if the video is at the rental store.

You’re all a bunch of liars. That was the first porn movie I saw at a regular theater. It was great and so was she. Sorry for your loss also Karson.

Have a buddy that has an unopened Ivory Snow box with her picture. He tried to sell it on ebay sometime back and could only get $15.

Maybe, as with any great artist, her work will increase in value now that she has passed.

I never actually saw the movie, but I remember hearing about it. As I recall, she also used to write a sex advice column in Penthouse magazine.

Shecky Greene was a riot. Anybody know if he’s still alive?

I agree with odie! It’s like when your first palm sander (no pun intended) finally gives up, It’s sad to see her go, you never forget the first….. (ok pun intended). We stole “Insatiable” off of my buddies dad back in 82’ I haven’t been right since. Thanks Marilyn!
