E-True Hollywood Story

Though there were no new revelations of any import in this special, it did feature a lot of rare photos of Dorothy shortly before her death as well as some film footage of her doing promotions for Playboy. There were also some nice photos of her when she was younger. The later shots of her which were very stylish B&W ones I think were of the eyeglass add she was shooting for Playboy. I think the main value this special had was to inform a new generation of her life. I don't think they did a good job of course because the key aspects of who she was and what prompted her to make the decisions she did that ultimately lead to her death were not covered. I'm too picky I guess. It's just that there is so much more to Dorothy than these specials will admit. Oh well, it is worth seeing.
