Long Jeanne Silver packed more life and adventure unto her first 25 years than most manage in a lifetime.
For a time in the 1980s, she was a regular in New York adult films and a featured dancer at the Melody Burlesk Theater in the city – but her life started on the other side of the country in Arizona where she was born and spent large parts of her childhood. There she grew up with the stigma of having part of her foot and leg amputated at an early age.
By the time she hit New York, just weeks after her 16th birthday in 1976, her rebellious ways meant that she was on the run from the law, and the fun was only just beginning.
Shortly after her arrival, she was featured on the pages of men’s magazines like Cheri and High Society, and on the big screen appearing in the notorious film Waterpower.
News reached the Mitchell Brothers, the renowned filmmakers and theater owners in San Francisco, who flew her out to join them, and there she appeared in her own show and starred in the Alex De Renzy film ‘Long Jeanne Silver‘
