Jeanne Silver began her career in adult in 1976 and did about 20 or so movies until she retired a few years later. She was best known for using the stump of her amputated leg to penetrate her sexual partner in her movies.
“I was born with a handicap but I turned it into an asset.” So screamed the tagline on posters for Alex deRenzy’s Long Jeanne Silver. It was the movie that put Arizona girl Jeanne Silver on the porn map and it’s still the one she’s most identified with. As a result of a congenital birth defect, Silver had her left foot and part of her lower leg amputated at an early age. A prosthesis disguised the fact that she was an amputee.
During her time in the adult industry, she has also been known by the names Long Jean Silver, Long Jeanie Silvers, Joan Beattie, Jean Silver, Long Jeanne Silver, Jean Silver, Jean Fulda, and Jeanne Silver.
Jeanne Silver has won the following adult industry awards …
- 2021 AVN Hall of Fame
