Storyline

Two men enter a fast food place. The owner asks them about a mysterious matter. After some considerations, one of the two guys accepts to tell the story. Here starts a long flashback: the two men are in a terrace, next to a lake, and one is telling the other a story. A woman sits at a table nearby. Later the same woman is kidnapped. When the blindfold is removed, a woman welcomes her. After a relaxing massage, she is accompanied by 6 women, into a stage, in front of masked men, and women of all kinds. A speaker explains that the woman will be pleased, by all means. The 6 women first, and later some men make love to her, while the audience progressively move into a orgy. This is the end of the flashback. The owner of the fast food place asks what happened after that time, but the men refuse to tell... Written by Andrea Pasqua <pasqua@sna.com>

Trivia

After seeing her (under the name Marilyn Briggs) in Wes Craven's 1971 film Together (1971), the Mitchell Brothers offered Marilyn Chambers a role in this movie, giving her the option of taking a role in which she wasn't required to have sex. Originally, Chambers chose a non-sex role, but allowed the Brothers to talk her into taking the lead. For her gig, she was paid $25,000 and 1% of earnings (which in 1974, brought her between $2,000 and $2,500 per month), the highest amount ever paid a porn performer. Chambers said that her experience was a good one as the Brothers treated her as an actress, with respect. See more »

The all-American classic
22 March 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Behind the Green Door is a ground-braking movie, it was the first adult movie with widely released in the United States, not only in adult theaters, but also in respectable mainstream movie houses. With Behind the Green Door the Mitchell Brothers changed the face of the adult film industry.

Marilyn Chambers stars as Gloria Saunders, and she plays a girl that's being kidnapped, and forced to perform various sexual acts before an audience at an underground sex club. The plot line doesn't sound that complex, and it isn't either, but this movie has one great and interesting character played terrific by Marilyn Chambers. The story is also very artistically, stylish and most erotic. Behind the Green Door isn't "just a porn movie", is actually much closer to an art-movie. Is like, if Kubrick ever made porn, than I guess it would look something like Behind the Green Door.

Behind the Green Door is really a masterpiece in its genre, and one of the most important movies in the history of America. 9 out of 10.
