Rebecca Brooke (born Mary Mendum, February 21, 1952 — July 17, 2012) was an American former pornographic film actress and model who specialized in sexploitation films, including both hardcore and softcore pornography in the 1970s. Vern L. Bullough wrote that Brooke was “one of the true beauties to grace the porn screen.
Contrary to some of the characters she portrayed, Brooke was a very private but kind and compassionate person in reality. Brooke married (and divorced) twice and had no children. She was known to be very skilled at cooking, and she worked at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City after her film career. Later, she, with her husband at the time, owned a restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee. However, Brooke lost this restaurant after a divorce. Pornographic actor Jamie Gillis (in a DVD interview) has said that Brooke converted to Islam shortly after retiring. In the last few years of her life, Brooke lived alone in Boca Raton, Florida.
Although there are rumors that she is still alive and that she may have even faked her death, Brooke died of an accidental drowning due to a fall on July 17, 2012 in Boca Raton, Florida. With respect to her wishes, there were neither announcements nor services of her death.
