Blonde bombshell Dorothy Stratten (1960-1980) was a Canadian model and actress. After appearing in Playboy Magazine as Miss August 1979, she was subsequently named Playboy's Playmate Of The Year in 1980. Her screen credits include the 1980 sci-fi cult classic Galaxina and They All Laughed (1981), a film directed by her lover, Peter Bogdanovich. On the verge of major stardom, Dorothy was tragically killed by her estranged husband, Paul Snider, in a brutal murder-suicide on August 14, 1980. Sadly, she was only 20 years old at the time of her death. In 1983, Dorothy was portrayed by Mariel Hemingway in the excellent biopic Star 80.
