According to her website, Samples was approached while in Marina Del Rey, California to do pin-up modeling. During the course of the 1960s, she appeared in numerous black and white magazines in "cheesecake" poses.
In addition to appearing in pornographic movies, she also appeared in some B-movie campy roles, including the leader of the Amazonian lesbians in the 1974 science fiction spoof Flesh Gordon. She also appeared in the Russ Meyer sexploitation films Up! (1976) and Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (1979), and the Australian softcore film Fantasm Comes Again (1977). She was often billed as Mary Gavin, and wore different wigs in almost all her movie appearances.
In 1979, she performed with John Holmes, Johnny Keyes, Serena, Uschi Digard, Kitten Natividad, and Kelly Stewart in the pornographic film John Holmes and the All-Star Sex Queens from Zane Entertainment Group. In those same years, she also took part in some "sexy wrestling" short-footage films too, mainly for Triumph Studios and Ron Dvorkin's Bellstone.
Since her retirement from the industry, Candy has married and divorced at least twice, and is suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer's Disease. She presently lives with a long time friend (and now caretaker) in the Washington D.C. area.
