Dorothy Stratten was Miss August 1979 in Playboy. She was crowned Playmate of the Year in 1980. She also worked for a time as a Playboy Bunny in Los Angeles. Her life and career (acting credits include Galaxina in 1980) were cut way too short by her estranged husband. He murdered her in August of 1980. I really didn't know who Dorothy Stratten was when she was alive. I was not even ten years old when she was killed. I think I first learned about her when Star 80 came out in 1983. Once I discovered what an amazing beauty she had been. I felt so awful that she had not lived longer. I wanted to know all I could about her. She's another one of those that was gone too soon. It's a shame that we didn't get to have her with us longer. I hope you like this picture and tribute video I'm posting of her.
