Marilyn Chambers, one of the most famous pornographic actresses in history, died on Sunday at the age of 56. Though foul play is not suspected, the cause remains unknown.

Chambers had already achieved some success in modeling (she was billed in films as “the Ivory Soap girl” for an early advertising appearance) when she made her porn debut in 1972′s Behind The Green Door. Despite starring in some mainstream films, including David Cronenberg‘s classic thriller Rabid, Chambers continued to appear in adult movies like Naked Fairytales and Little Shop Of Erotica until her death.
