I found the Mitchell Bros.' INSIDE MARILYN CHAMBERS both educational and sexually stimulating. That's a mean feat for a documentary, and a helluva lot more entertaining than the latest Ken Burns opus.
Made when Marilyn had become, almost overnight, the biggest name in porn and an icon figure to boot, it consists of interviews with her and the co-stars of the brothers' hit films BEHIND THE GREEN DOOR and THE RESURRECTION OF EVE. Some very interesting complete sex scenes and deleted footage from those films, plus behind-the-scenes glimpses of the Mitchells at work round off the doc.
Of course this is self-serving, but no more than the idiotic (and a lot less rewarding) DVD "extras" that have become standard issue over the last decade. The actors' comments are insightful, especially so many years later, with Tyler Horne less of an enigma for me as a result, Johnnie Keyes insufferably egotistical as the only black star in porn back then, and George McDonald sadly the "forgotten" thesp.
