Adult Actress Nancy Suiter Was Cheryl Ladd’s XXX-Rated Look-A-Like!

Meet Porn Star Cheryl Ladd!

Yes, the star of the smash TV series “Charlie’s Angels” in the 70’s was also an Adult Movie Queen!

OK, she WASN’T, NOT AT ALL – but a savvy Movie Producer used a young Actress’s look to sell her that way!

That’s Cheryl Ladd on the left and the poster for the XXX-rated film “Taxi Girls” on the right. Note that the poster has Cheryl’s name in bold letters…except it says that Nancy Suiter is a “Cheryl Ladd look-a-like!”

The Mystery Of Cheryl Ladd Look-A-Like Nancy Suiter!

This is the story of Adult Actress Nancy Suiter, who had a very short XXX-rated career before disappearing forever…what happened to her, and did the attempt to call her the “porn Cheryl Ladd” impact her career?

Let’s take a look at the mystery of Nancy Suiter…

There is no biographical information about her online that I could find – no information about when or where she was born – so Nancy is a mystery to me – but she was a very popular star for a short period of time…

Nancy was a popular adult men’s magazine Model – I found many cover pictures of her and lots of pictorials as well:

Nancy got her start in XXX-rated cinema in the 1979 adult film “The Ecstasy Girls” – as you can see it was an all-star film to be sure!

Serena starred in this one – what a career she had!

The film starred Desiree Cousteau, another of the most popular stars of the “golden age of porn”:

Desiree had a great run of adult films – and have you seen her wild wild wild “Pretty Peaches?”

As for Nancy, she went on to appear in a number of films – and that “Cheryl Ladd Look-A-Like” tag became her calling card:

She worked under the name “Candy Summer” in the 1979 adult film “800 Fantasy Lane” before the Producers of “Taxi Girls” literally put Ladd on the cover of their poster!

“Taxi Girls” was also released in 1979 – as you can see from the ad, the film advertised her as “the CHERYL LADD look-alike” – and the poster does just that with a direct knockoff

This was Nancy’s starring role and she was terrific in it!

Here’s the plot: a sexy hooker comes up with a plan to operate her own taxi service for her fellow streetwalkers as a safe way to make easy money, with their male customers.

While she really didn’t look that much like Ladd, it was a good marketing hook to be sure.

Another film referred to Nancy as “The Ecstasy Girl!” A reference to her debut film of course…

Nancy was tagged that in the 1981 film “The Beauty Pageant” – and that was it!

That’s right: after this very short run in adult film, Nancy disappeared!

Nancy dropped off the face of the earth – so what happened?

This is quite the mystery, but as always, there is a fantastic website that has a fascinating look at the film that made her a legend!

Note how this VHS cover art spells her name differently – this photo is from “The Rialto Report”, which digs into the story of “Taxi Girls” – click here to see it:

The brilliant “Rialto Report” has the entire story of how the “Taxi Girls” Producer used Nancy as a “Cheryl Ladd lookalike”, and the lawsuit that resulted – Nancy by the way ended up going by a few different names in photo shoots that I found as well:

Nancy’s Mysterious Disappearance Explained?

As always, IMDB.com, a terrific website covering all entertainment, had some terrific speculation – this is what they had to say about Nancy:

“Almost as quickly as she came into the business, she left it. Rumors have circulated for years that she married a multi-millionaire who insisted that she leave the business, other rumors say that she got involved with heroin and cocaine, fell in with the wrong crowd, descended into prostitution and overdosed, others that she was either killed in an accident or murdered by a boyfriend/lover/pimp. Since no one knew much about her when she got into the business, and she apparently told co-workers nothing about herself, her fate will no doubt remain a mystery.”

A mystery indeed! 

I found an adult website that offered this:

“Renowned Screw columnist and author Josh Alan Friedman writes 5/22/01: 

Dear Luke,

You’re the third fellow to email me trying to locate Nancy Suiter. What this derives from is a new biography of Terry Southern (A Grand Guy: The Art and Life of Terry Southern, by Lee Hill, Harper Collins). Around 20 years ago, Terry expressed a keen desire to locate Nancy, and since I was a Screw editor, I set out on an investigative search. She had changed her name and retired into the protective arms of some business tycoon, I was told (rancher, oilman or something), who threatened to “punch out” anyone who tried to lure her back into the life. Her agent told me the married couple had even rejected small offers for her to appear in several Hollywood A-list films. But no matter, for Terry and I came across some then-recent photos of Nancy, displaying an overworked, no-longer tight snatch, and his interest began to fizzle.”

So there you go, that’s one option – and I hope it’s true, because it means she left the business and has a happy life!

Here’s another funny “look-a-like” story – this 80’s Model / Singer wasn’t an Adult Film Star, but she was often confused with one – because of her name!

Samantha Fox was often confused with a different Samantha Fox, who was a star during the “golden age of porn” – they had the same name!

See their stories here:

Just as Nancy Suiter was called the XXX-rated Cheryl Ladd look-a-like, another adult Actress also had a doppelgänger:

Rhonda Jo Petty was called the “X-rated Farrah Fawcett!” And not just by me – that’s how her film were advertised!

See her wild story here:

Her story reminds me of another Icon of that era:

Seka also had “movie star” looks, and was one of the biggest Actresses ever in adult film…see her whole story here:

  3. I see no resemblance at all to Cheryl Ladd. But I think Nancy actually looks much sexier. At least she found her rich man, and a life outside of porn. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
