Hugh Hefner, Peter Bogdanovich, Mariel Hemingway and Stratten's family help tell the tragic tale of the model and actor.
At 14, she was working at a Dairy Queen to help support the family. She was still there four years later when Paul Snider walked in and changed her life.
Just months after she was "discovered," Dorothy Stratten was a Playboy Playmate of the Month--and Snider's wife. Soon, modeling offers and film roles were pouring in. But as her fame grew, her relationship with Snider soured, and it took a tragic turn when he took her life before turning the gun on himself. From the bitter recriminations following her death to rare footage of the talented star before her career began, BIOGRAPHY® unravels fact from fiction in this probing look at a woman who became a powerful symbol of the dark side of fame.
Among the many people featured in this comprehensive portrait are Hugh Hefner, Peter Bogdanovich, Mariel Hemingway - who played Stratten in Star 80 - and Dorothy's sister Louise.
