My acting is very important to me … My film has never been found to be obscene by any court in the United States or anywhere else in the world. We just recently showed it at Cannes." Note that KPIX-TV reporter Pat O'Brien can be heard off-camera asking Chambers questions about her performance. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
