Behind The Green Door (1972)

Behind The Green Door starred former cheerleader and Junior Olympic diver Marilyn Chambers, whose credit as the ex-Ivory Snow Girl gave her virtually mythic qualifications for fulfilling the fantasies of the red-blooded American male.


The feature-length pornographic film cost producers Jim and Artie Mitchell $50,000 to film. It grossed an astounding $50 million.

Gloria (Chambers) is kidnapped and taken to a mysterious location where she is hypnotised and led on stage in front of an audience. In a state of hypnosis, she takes part in a series of erotic performances.

During the sexual activities, the music slows into a ritualistic drone while the images saturate in colour and overlap, lulling the audience into a trance-like state.

Through the use of colour saturation, music, and slow motion, the Mitchell Brothers mimic the state of hypnosis, creating a kinky psychedelic experience.
