SANTA CLARITA, Calif. - Marilyn Chambers, star of such golden age classics as Behind the Green Door and Insatiable, was found dead Sunday in the mobile home where she had been living for the past several months. She was 57. Chambers was found by her daughter, McKenna. No cause of death is yet known, and an autopsy will be performed.

Chambers, who said she began performing under her real name because she was unashamed of what she did, was nonetheless born Marilyn Ann Briggs, and she made 16 movies during the period 1972 to 1986, mostly for the Mitchell Brothers and Caballero Home Video. It was at Caballero that she created the series Marilyn Chambers' Private Fantasies. During this period, she was married to her manager, Chuck Traynor, and though they were divorced in 1985, when Chambers made her comeback film for VCA Pictures, Still Insatiable, in 1998, she requested that Traynor be present for the filming to lend her moral support. The comeback, however, was short-lived, generating just nine movies, some of which were non-sex roles. Chambers tried her hand at producing as well, creating what was hoped to be a continuing series, Nantucket Housewives, for her own company, Damaged Productions.

Chambers was also famous for having appeared as the "cover girl" on boxes of Ivory Snow detergent, and was the star of David Cronenberg's horror film Rabid in 1977.

LOS ANGELES — An autopsy has shown that retired adult performer Marilyn Chambers died of complications of heart disease, coroner's officials said today. Chambers was found dead at her Canyon Country-area home April 12.
Los Angeles coroner's officials said at the time of her death that Chambers had likely died of natural causes despite her relatively young age. She was 56.

Autopsy and toxicology tests confirmed she had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and aneurysm related to heart disease. Toxicology tests showed the presence of the painkiller hydrocodone and the antidepressant Citalopram in her bloodstream, but not in amounts that could have caused her death, according to coroner's officials.

Chambers starred in the 1972 Mitchell Brothers film "Behind the Green Door" at age 19, and worked with the Mitchell Brothers for the follow-up "Resurrection of Eve." She was married to producer Chuck Traynor, who also had been involved with Linda Lovelace, and worked with John C. Holmes in the 1980 adult production "Insatiable." She also appeared the 1977 mainstream independent film "Rabid" for director David Cronenberg.

She returned to adult in "Still Insatiable" for VCA in 1998, and made some instructional videos in 2006-2007 and occasional appearances at industry events.

A memorial service was held for Chambers at Zuma Beach on April 22, which would have been her 57th birthday.
