Kandi Barbour (born Linda Jean Smith in 1956, died January 2012) was an American former adult model, pornographic actress and exotic dancer.[1] She was very popular with audiences in the Golden Age of Porn in the 1970s and 1980s.[1]

Barbour was the star of such notable adult films as Screwples (Caballero Home Video, 1979), The Budding of Brie (VCA, 1980), Chuck Vincent's Bon Appetit (Video-X-Pix, 1980), Richard Mahler's Pink Ladies (VCA, 1980), and Warren Evans' Pandora's Mirror (Caballero, 1981).[1] She was perhaps best known as the poster girl for Cecil Howard's landmark film, Neon Nights, which was named by AVN as one of the 101 greatest adult videos of all time.[1] Barbour gave her final adult film performance in 1987 in X-Effect, directed by Ron Jeremy.[1]

In 2009, she was inducted into the Pioneers branch of the X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO) Hall of Fame.[1]

Barbour reportedly died in late January 2012 in San Francisco at age 55, and she was reportedly homeless at the time.[1]
