Trivia of Behind the Green Door

- After seeing her (under the name Marilyn Briggs) in 'Wes Craven' (qv)'s 1971 film _Together (1971)_ (qv), the Mitchell Brothers offered 'Marilyn Chambers (I)' (qv) a role in this movie, giving her the option of taking a role in which she wasn't required to have sex. Originally, Chambers 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. Chambers said that her experience was a good one as the Brothers treated her as an actress, with respect.

- Hadley V. Baxendale, given as a cast member, is actually a hallmark legal decision for liability in shipping matters.

- Though Marilyn Chambers is promoted as the female lead of "Behind The Green Door," her character of Gloria, surprisingly, has NO lines of spoken dialogue anywhere in the entire film.

- The source story was an underground work of fiction that had been circulating for decades before the Mitchell brothers, Arthur and James, commissioned its adaptation for the X-rated screen. Full Trivia >>
