Playboy Bunnies were often asked, through
the club, to do outside work. We never knew what our assignments would
be from week to week. I was asked to appear in two "Dating Game"
television shows, ride in a Hollywood Christmas Parade with Honorary
Mayor Johnny Grant, and work diligently in collecting soap to be sent
overseas to the Vietnamese children.
Occasionally, we'd be asked to audition
for appearances in various movies and, if we got the job, we were
allowed to work our Bunny Schedules around filming.
This picture was taken during shooting
one of those films. I was awarded a role in a completely forgettable
movie entitled "Movie Star, American Style" (1966) with Robert Strauss.
My character was called "Sweetie Pie Lambie" and she spoke with a
breathless quality a la Marilyn Monroe. I don't even remember seeing the
rushes. I just learned what few lines I had, did what I was asked and
then hurried home to my real job.
