After getting a lot of emails from fans sharing short statements they found about Dorothy in magazines and such, I decided to create a page devoted to accumulating these snippets. This is your page fans, I really want you to email me every little thing you find. I am looking for short statements and remembrances about Dorothy that I can post here. Thank you all for your help. Let's see what we can do!
MY FAVORITE PLAYMATE BY DR. DREW
"My favorite is Dorothy Stratten because she had an angelic, otherworldly beauty. Unfortunately Dorothy didn't stay with us long. I'm drawn to people in pain, and I instinctively knew that this woman was suffering. I felt the connection."
MY FAVORITE PLAYMATE BY DAVID CARRADINE
"My favorite would have to be Miss August 1979, Dorothy Stratten. At the time of her death I was putting together a film, "Karate is a thing of the Spirit," and she was my first choice for the female lead. Right in the middle she died, which froze the movie and my emotions about her."
MY FAVORITE PLAYMATE BY RICHARD SIMMONS
"I have an exercise studio in Los Angeles and the Playboy offices are right around the corner. The playmates use to come in to workout after photo shoots, It was very exciting. But recalling my favorite is sad because it's Dorothy Stratten, the Playmate who was murdered. Dorothy came to the gym every day. When she died Playboy called to tell me. It was tough. Her death was just so unnecessary."
MY FAVORITE PLAYMATE BY SAMANTHA MATHIS
"I know Peter Bogdanovich, so I'd have to say my favorite Playmate is Dorothy Stratten, I've been to his house and seen her photographs. She was a spectacularly beautiful woman."
