R.I.P. Candy Samples (1928 – 2019)

R.I.P. Candy Samples (1928 – 2019)

Candy Samples, who enjoyed a long career as a hugely popular buxom model in men’s magazines and as an actress in adult films, passed away this week.

She was 91.

Candy Samples was one of the true larger than life figures that lit up the early adult industry: she appeared in cult movies such as Russ Meyer‘s Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (1979) (where she was ‘The Very Big Blonde’) and Up! (1976), and also Flesh Gordon (1974), Fantasm (1976), Deep Jaws (1976), and The Best Little Whorehouse in San Francisco (1985), as well as tens of loops – to name but a few.

She was in black and white cheesecake photo sets from the late 1960s, thousands of magazines, and scores of films – from softcore to hardcore, from loops to catfight wrestling shorts.

She had a mischievous, friendly look that stood out from all the other models. She often played the roles of older women that somehow looked like your mother’s naughty friend, exuding a mysterious sex appeal.

And then there were her breasts. With her formidable physique, she looked like an Amazonian queen; fit, tanned, and invincible. Her staggering physique made her an instant favorite, and for many years she toured as an exotic dancer. Somehow she just seemed to get more popular with age, and she developed a huge following that endured right through to her retirement in the late 1980s – and even today her magazine spreads exchange hands for elevated prices.

After she retired, she remained active – writing columns in the 1990s for magazines like Juggs. And she had an online fan club where she would have chat sessions with fans.

When we started The Rialto Report, we knew we wanted to interview her. We figured that as she’d been active in the industry for almost 40 years it wouldn’t be difficult to find her. We figured wrong.

She’d disappeared from public view, changing her name on multiple occasions (she was rumored to have married eight times), and we spent years trying to track her down.

After leaving messages for her with scores of people, we got a call from a person one day who told us that Candy was living with him.

We packed our bags, and went to meet her.

Our podcast tells the story of what happened next.

We are indebted to GH and KB for their kind assistance in putting this feature together.

This podcast is 45 minutes long.

    Like JULIET ‘AUNT PEG” ANDERSON, another adult star and movies goddess has left us…

    CANDY SAMPLES was a pioneer way before Juliet, but the one other thing they both shared besides the sexy assets and sexy attitudes, was that they both truly enjoyed what they did and it showed!

    They enjoyed their many fans, and they really knew how to tease and delight them.

    CANDY excelled with soft-core porn and then out of necessity and to stay a headliner moved later into hardcore.

    She was a true original who like so many other performers never ended up in the money. Used and abused by an industry that made millions off of her and will continue to do so…

      WOW!! Haven’t listened to interview but what a truly amazing beautiful woman in all those wonderful photos. Truly a legend. RIP Candy.

    • Johnson Michaels · October 4, 2019 Reply

      Graham: To be clear, Candy’s earliest work was hardcore loops around 1971-72. She then segued into softcore and non-sex roles until 1984 when she returned to hardcore for the rest of her career.

        I met her at Show World Center on 42nd Stin NYC where she was a feature performer upstairs in the Triple Treat Theater. I worked downstairs in the Peep Show as a booth girl. Although we never had interactions with the porn stars that did shows upstairs one day she was walking past and I impulsively said hello….she stopped and asked me about what we were doing…about the booths and all manner of things…we talked for 15 minutes…she was so delightful….a warm and a gracious lady. She told me I was gorgeous and that she hoped to run into me again. At the time I had no idea who she was and found out later…this was in the late eighties. May she Rest in Eternal Peace

        Dear pornytude,

        The news was only on AVN because they saw the announcement on Rialto Report first. AVN then interviewed the Rialto guys for their obit.

        So Tony Gee is correct. Without the Rialto Report you would NOT have this news.

      One vintage star I have a burning curiosity for is Virginia Winters, she starred in “the liberation of honey doll Jones” and SWEDISH EROTICA’S ‘ THE INVITATION, with John Holmes. I haven’t seen or read much about her.

    I feel like there’s been a death in my family. She was my first fantasy girl. First woman I ever saw naked! A buddy had snuck an 8mm porn movie mail order package from his dad and brought it to school. Inside was a featured add for the All Stars of Sex featuring John Holmes and Candy Samples. She was amazing! I always had an attraction to older women and I’m sure it’s always been as a result. R.I.P. Candy, and thank you for being the lovely person you were inside and out.

    Oh, I am so sad to hear this news and I checked your site for fear that something my have happened to our dear and beloved, Candy. I have always felt connected to her and my feelings were right.

    Candy is someone that I have adored since I was in my late teens and no one has ever come close to her in comparison as a woman in any way. She was everything I could ever hope for. Besides following Candy in all her magazine appearances, I had the pleasure to meet her and she was more sweet than I could have imagined. She had a twinkle in her eyes, a beautiful smile, and she loved to laugh.

    I want to thank the Rialto Report, and especially April, for her wonderful interview. She was so kind, caring, and sensitive in consideration of Candy’s condition. To indulge my intuition, I listened to the interview again just a week ago and it made me happy to hear Candy laugh and it was touching to hear her tell April “I like you”. It gave me peace to know that she was content with herself.

    I love you Candy and I know your wish was to be closer to God. 🌹

        I also want to thank her caretaker, John, for protecting and caring for Candy when she was most vulnerable. He was her angel in a time of need, and I respect and admire what he did for her. Even when I wanted to send her flowers, he declined but I understood why. ❤️

    Incidentally, I just finished watching, “All The Way In”, and I am sadden that Candy Samples had passed away. She was a legend. The “Gilf” of her time before the word became a search term in various adult websites. She will be deeply missed.

    I admit to being not much of a big boobs guy but she is beautiful! There are have been literally tons of boobs but those just might be the best ever. A previous commenter stated that she was GILF way before that was cool and I would have to agree.

    Another thoughtful and sensitive work. It was a tough call but you did the right thing making this a podcast. It was great to find out some facts about her career and age– mostly from you, and your diligent Chandleresque research– but to hear such a wonderful person just before she died made it all real.
    Even if she couldn’t remember past details like names, even of those close to her, she did have vivid emotions of past events, how it made her feel. Talked with an acquaintance who has parents with Alzheimers and does fundraising for a cure; it seems this is common with the disease.
    Bravo to you and Ashley. RR does work that really transcends the simple subject matter.

    Candy had a very famous acquaintance you should know about: the late theoretical physicist Dr. Richard Feynman, a Nobel prize laureate. (cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Feynman). According to the popular science magazine “Seed” (cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seed_(magazine)) – quite an appropriate serial title in this context – their familiarity was obvious to all who visited Professor Feynman’s office at Cal Tech:

    “The most shameless cad of the group [of theoretical physicists of the 20th century] was Richard Feynman… He even kept a picture in his office of one acquaintance, buxom adult film star Candi Samples, signed, ‘To Big Dick, Love from Candi.'” (sic.) (cf. https://www.seedmagazine.com/content/article/getting_physical/ )

    The subject of multiple popular biographies, Feynman is widely regarded as one of the greatest American theoretical physicists in history. A theorem in his first published professional paper, part of his undergraduate thesis work, was still of vital use to me over four decades later, as I wrote my doctoral thesis in solid state physics. (cf. https://books.google.com/books?id=WsdL41-NfV8C&dq=editions%3A6JpgSFDzoGkC&focus=searchwithinvolume&q=%22Feynman%27s+theorem%22 )

    April, so sorry to hear that Candy recently passed away. Such a beautiful lady inside and out! (I still have pictures of her from late seventies during my teen years.) After listening to your wonderful interview with her, I’m even more sorry that I never had the pleasure of meeting her for an autograph to witness her charm and beauty. I’m also heartbroken at the way most of the men in her life mistreated her. I will never forget her or her special beauty on my way to manhood! God be with you Candy, now and forever.

    Great interview April, Thank you.

  30. Cyberdolphnow · October 24, 2019 Reply

    I so remember her from JUGGS magazine which was a raunchy tome to female mammary glands
    Incredible to think that Ms. Samples’ adult career started around the time she was 40 years old back in the late 1960s era of the baby boomers’ worshipping at the altar of youth. As others have written she was a GILF decades before the creation of the terminology. You could tell that she was already mature, not just made up to look older, by subtle but truthful hints such as crows feet around her eyes yet she wasn’t undergoing plastic surgery to escape aging. When she embraced her later 1980s blond wavy hair wig style it was inconguent with her prior hair looks but she could be forgiven this given her lack of plastic surgery and need to maintain touring the clubs into her 50s.
    Rest in Peace Candy Samples

    I have a particularly sensitive relationship with Candy. I remember the day I saw her for the first time. I was walking in Paris in the early 80s with my aunt. I must have been about 7 or 8 yeard old and I was a little sad that day. We passed a cinema which was to offer films for adults. I looked at the photos in the window and saw this splendid woman. Without really understanding of course at my age, her pretty smile, her beautiful look, her generous and comforting shapes …. this first meeting with Candy made me smile …. and fed my fantasies even today and for a long time. Thank you Candy. With all my love…

    I remember seeing Flesh Gordon at a movie theatre in Australia. Candy looked like a Goddess. Then another movie where she had a very small part. The main character was in bed with a woman in a cabin on a boat. They were both hidden under the covers. The woman appears from under the covers and it is Candy topless. The impression that made when I was 23 or 24 years old lasted a long time.
    I was already in the process of emigrating to the USA and had no idea that I would meet Candy and have an intimate relationship with her about 7 years later. I lived in Malibu and she lived in Playa Del Rey. She was kind, loving, funny and I would say with some naivety in the most innocent way. She was not hardened or callous in any way, which is what some may perceive because of that industry. It was very sad that we could not continue our relationship. I managed an estate for a motion picture company owner, as well as personal protection to him. Keeping my relationship with Candy personal and separate to my employment was difficult. Especially as I resided in one of the homes on the estate. Candy only visited me there once. She drove a red Mercedes with tags that read, BUSTY 1…. I always went to her condo.
    It got to the point where I had to choose to quit my job and live with Candy or continue with my highly paid job. I know it greatly hurt both of us. I could not just travel with Candy and have her support me which is what she wanted to do.
    It’s horrible that other men took advantage of her in this regard…
    RIP in peace sweet Candy…

      So many fine tributes. I’ll add a little. It cannot be too strongly stated that Candy’s melons were so far beyond beautiful. She left the world in her wake. She knew that she gave great joy to men; she enjoyed doing so. She took great pride in her breasts, a personal trait which I found to be wonderful and admirable. It would have been a tragic loss otherwise. She knew her magical effect on men. She did it with twinkle in her eyes, a smile on her face, and a deep hypnotizing cleavage between her spectacular juggs. There is nothing, and has been nothing, on the face of the earth as gorgeous as Candy’s tits. Period. Full stop.

    I was so lucky to find The Rialto Report . I listened to the Candy Samples podcast and was so pleased to catch up with her story and so sorry to hear of her passing. I have had a crush on her for years and loved her movies. I was very lucky to catch her live act around 1987-88 at the Park Theater in Lincoln Park, MI with a few high school buddies. She was so hot and sexy in person. I was lucky to get a kiss from her and her autographed photo. I have lost track of my autographed photo and really bummed to this day. R.I.P. Candy and thank you!!!!!

    I first discovered Candy Samples in her many photo spreads in Juggs Magazine and her hot, sexy stories she published in Juggs. When her movie “All the Way In” came out, I immediately purchased the VHS Video and watched it a gazillian times over the years. She seemed to become more beautiful the older she got. When I first became a fan she was already in her late 40’s and a drop dead gorgeous porn goddess with the most beautiful perfect big boobs in the world. I met her in person when I was hanging out with Cassandra Peterson (Elvira) and Candy Samples did a Halloween promotional event with Elvira for a Rock Radio Station. I still have a color photo of Candy & Elvira comparing boobs on stage somewhere. I am very sad to hear that Candy passed away last September. She was a very sweet, classy lady.

    Sadly, I never got to meet Candy in person and sure wish that it could have been otherwise!! I have been a fan of hers for a really long time to now, and even though I only saw recently that she had passed away back in 2,019 it was both shocking and sad to find out!! She was very hot and also a total knockout no matter how much older she got!! I do have a signed photo of her which was personalized to me, although I have no recollection of having written to her curiously! I will definitely miss her, but also am glad that so many others are remembering her!! She was unique and also one of a kind!!

    I met her in 1980. She was the Special Guest of the club I worked at. I had just finished college and was now in the Navy. We started talking. I was so amazed at her. We talked about Physics and a new Cyclotron. Space exploration in the future and much more. She had a wonderful mind. She was so very bright. She was a delight. She posed some thoughtful questions on some complicated science issues. She will be remembered. For me it was one of the most interesting nights of my life. May she rest in Peace.

    This interview brought tears to my eyes. I admire this woman since I was 10 or something. She was truly larger than life in every aspect, her smile, her bubbly and super warm character and personality. She didn’t need her breasts to be sexy, although that was a huge bonus, especially at a time when most women thought that having big breasts is a bad thing. But she truly had it in her, she knew she gave pleasure to everyone and she loved it.
    April thank you for this great documentation and mostly for treating her with respect.
    R.I.P. Candy, you will never be forgotten!

    Do you believe that only today I found out about Candy’s death! But that she was pure fire, oh, that she was!

    I began making marijuana seeds a few years ago. I named one of the first strains Candy Samples. It’s very hard to find these days, but I still have an original pack.

    what turned me on most about Candy was the wrestling videos she did. U could see in some of the videos she was competitive and trying to win. And in some of the videos u could see how strong she was. IN one video she lifted the woman she was wrestling like a sack of potatoes hip high and just bounced he up and down. U had to be very very strong to do something like that. I had to find out more about her wrestling and how strong she was. In the late 80’s at the end of her career she was dancing at a club in Philly on Market Street next to the club was a hotel it turned out she was staying at that week. I went to her last night show and made sure i was the last in line for a personal pic. I think it was either $10 or $20. I remember giving her a $10 tip on top of the cost of the pic. I started to talk to her about her wrestling and to my surprise she loved to talk about it. She was really into wrestling. I asked her if she ever wrestled a guy and she said not on video but she did. I asked her if she would wrestle me in her room. To my amazement she said yes but you probably cant afford it. I said how much and she said $500 for 30 minutes. Now that was a lot of money in those days but I knew this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I didnt have that much money on me and said I would be back the next night same time. I show up the next night and she is amazed that I did and had the money. She said U are going also have to pay the bouncer at the club $20 he will stand outside the room when we wrestle. I wont get into the specifics of us wrestling but she wore a bra and panties. Now I am about 6 foot and at the time weighed around 170lbs and she threw me around the room like a rag doll, I heard she was this sweet woman but that all changed. I was looking for a friendly roll around and she was hell bent on just beating me as fast she could. Within a few minutes she was on top on me my arms under her legs and I could not get up. She wanted to end it there but I said we never agreed to who pinned who or how fast so I wanted the rest of my time. This pissed her off to no end and for the rest of the time she just worked me over with one painful hold after another. I knew nothing about wrestling and while she was no pro she knew her share of holds. Several times she got me into a headlock and squeezed my head into her chest. I remember grabbing her bicep try to break the hold and they were rock hard. She also knew how to head scissor and waist scissor. When she got me in these holds it was unbearable. She laughed at me as I said I could not take any more and begged her to ease up, which she only did after several minutes of real pain on my part. At one point I though she would break my ribs that is how strong her legs were. As she was squeezing me she said you will never find legs as strong as mine, that is from years of dancing. Well I got my full 30 minutes that night and enough humiliation for a life time. A woman more then half my age, 8 inches shorter and at least 30lbs less, worked me over with ease and physically had her way with me. To this day I still could not believe how strong and tough she was. She may have been a really sweet woman but that night she was one tough mean woman that taught me a lesson. Years later when she was writing for Juggs I wrote to her about it and she remembered me. She replied and had a good laugh in her letter telling me she really enjoyed beating me that night and how sorry she was that I never came back again when she was at the club for another match. She actually said in the letter that it was the easiest $500 she ever made. So for $500 I got whipped my a woman but I can always say it wasn’t just any woman but Candy Samples.

      Great insight. You have to tip your cap to her. Candy apparently made a pretty fair amount of money well into her 50s performing on stage, a few full length films, many modeling pics, and so on. In the 1980’s she squeezed a lot of hard work into a nice living. From the info gleaned here and elsewhere, that creep, Romano, did his best to siphon off her hard earned fame and fortune for himself. But no one can deny her effect on men.
