Carol Connors (born November 13, 1952)[1] is an American former pornographic actress. She was sometimes credited as Caroline May and Carol Kaiser, and starred in about 20 adult movies between 1971 and 1981. Married to Jack Birch[when?] for years, Connors is the mother of actress Thora Birch.[2]

Career[edit]

Carol Connors began her adult entertainment career in the early 1970s, achieving fame in Deep Throat[1] in 1972 and The Erotic Adventures of Candy in 1978. In 1979, she had a notable appearance in Gail Palmer's Candy Goes to Hollywood. In 1981, she directed and starred in Desire for Men.

Connors also appeared on The Gong Show,[1][3] where she eventually became one of Chuck Barris's introducers. Her debut on the program, in 1977, was as a song-and-dance contestant. Said Connors, "I was awarded nine points by the two men judges and two points by Jaye P. Morgan, one for each ... bosom."[1] She was subsequently invited back for frequent appearances as one of the hostesses who introduced Barris at the start of the show.[1] Her Gong Show appearances were parodied in Candy Goes To Hollywood.

Connors also appeared alongside Aldo Ray in Sweet Savage, the first ever XXX-rated adult western film, in 1979. The movie was shot on location at Apacheland Movie Ranch in Apache Junction, Arizona.[4][5]
