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.
Candy also did some pretty wild shorts (8MM, no sound) for different film makers mostly in the 1970's. A very hot "older woman" she especially enjoyed doing films with younger guys, sometimes two or three at a time. She was known for her mastery of fellatio and from time to time enjoyed making films with women that were more of a romantic theme with either single or mutual cunnilingus. One of the most popular shoots she participated in was a magazine with a sexy older woman young grocery store clerk "delivering" her groceries theme. He delivered alright, so did Candy. The magazines pictures left nothing to the imagination except for some reason the center fold picture, which took up both sides of the magazine, wasn't of Candy and the "clerk". It was of another couple, no where near as attractive. Otherwise this was a marvelous effort.
