    • After seeing her Marilyn Briggs in Together (1971), the Mitchell Brothers offered her a role in “Behind the Green Door,” giving her the option of taking a role in which she wasnt required to have sex. Originally, Briggs chose a non-sex role, but allowed the Brothers to talk her into taking the lead. For her gig, she was paid $25,000 and 1% of earnings (which in 1974, brought her between $2,000 and $2,500 per month), the highest amount ever paid a porn performer. Now called Marilyn Chambers, “Green Door” made her a porno superstar, and one of the only porn actresses to cross over into mainstream features.
