Greed, jealousy, and possessive vengeance combined to create the insanity that robbed the world of one of Playboy's most beautiful Playmates ever, Dorothy Stratten. An import from the same area of Canada that would later spawn Pamela Anderson, Dorothy had the blessings of a phenomenal, nature-crafted blondness, pure and touching charisma, and a body that would have exuded irresistible sex appeal even had it been inhabited by a bitter crone rather than the bundle of breasts and sunshine that was Dorothy. Take one glance at her fine bottom, full breasts in profile, and shag haircut in Autumn Born (1979) and be forever smitten. The young Ms. Stratten had the great good fortune to be Playboy's Playmate of the Year for 1980. She had the greater misfortune to fall into the clutches of psychotic manager/husband Paul Snider and a clique of selfish gropers. The bio-pic Star 80 (1983) conveys the sordid, predatory depravity of the murderous milieu that destroyed her. But Mariel Hemingway as the doomed sun, though lovely in her own light, could not be expected to duplicate the luminous essence of Dorothy Stratten.
