Kandi Barbour was, in my humble opinion, one of the loveliest women to ever do
hard-core. She had a sweet face, nice hair, but oh, that body. If you like
Puffy Nipples, she is a goddess. Of course, no one is perfect, and she
couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. She was in the business but a few
years, from early 1979 to 1983 or thereabouts by my estimation, but as you can
see below, was very busy during those years. For some time after, her visage
graced magazine ads.
AKA Kandi. Candi Barber, Barbeau
Her real name was Linda Jean Smith, from the town of Shawnee, Kansas. I have
held off on publishing her full name until I saw that it was published on a web
site detailing her early years in San Francisco. This and more of her early
biography is from a fellow who's Nome de net is Archbishop Jim. Kandi
evidently lived with him on and off for several years, both before and during
her Porn years. For more from this source, the URL is:
Appeared Circa 1981 on the Robin Byrd show, a cable access program.
Evidently worked in the phone sex industry for a while, according to reports.
According to Cinema Blue (March 1986) She moved from New York to Hawaii
sometime after late 1983 / early 1984, dancing from time to time there. She
was said to have fallen on "hard times" Someone emailed me that during this
time she appeared on the TV series Magnum PI in a small role, but I have no
confirmation of that..
An article in Adult Cinema Review at about that times states that she was
living in Manhattan, on the East side with a musician. The pics with the
article shows that she has gained 30 - 50 pounds since her prime days, also had
what looked like a tattoo of a rose on her left breast.
For a current list of her available movies, you can also check Excalibur's Porn
Star Mall, where you can also see a picture of her. She is also featured quite
a bit in the newsgroup alt.binaries.erotica.puffies.
