Circumstance: Mainstream actress turned adult film star

Chambers became one of the iconic adult film stars of the '70s and '80s after kick-starting her blue-movie career with Behind the Green Door, but with a couple more breaks she might as well have stayed mainstream. Her modeling credits included the famous Ivory Snow box, and her film, The Owl and the Pussycat, starring Barbra Streisand and George Segal, was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Picture (Musical or Comedy).
