About Behind the Green Door

Behind the Green Door, a 1972 film directed by the Mitchell brothers, was a groundbreaking and controversial film that pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable in mainstream cinema. Starring Marilyn Chambers, the film tells the story of a woman who is kidnapped and forced to participate in a series of sexual acts in front of a live audience.

The film was notable for its explicit content, which included scenes of bondage, group sex, and interracial sex. It was also one of the first films to feature a white actress in a leading role in an adult film.

Despite its controversial subject matter, Behind the Green Door was a commercial success, grossing over $50 million worldwide. It also received critical acclaim, with some critics praising its artistic merit and others condemning it as pornography.

Today, the film is considered a classic of the adult film genre and a landmark in the history of American cinema. It continues to be studied and analyzed by film scholars and remains a controversial and divisive work.
