Everyone loves a rags-to-riches story, and Dorothy Stratten’s life checks a lot of those boxes. Her brush with fame, however, was tragically brief.  Starting her career as a naïve Playboy bunny, she soon became a pawn in a dangerous game between her controlling husband, an obsessed director, and Hugh Hefner himself. Unfortunately, these shady connections only led to her untimely demise.

1. She Was A Teenage Queen

Born on February 28, 1960, in Vancouver Canada, Dorothy Stratten enjoyed a fairly normal childhood, that is until she reached her teen years. By the time she hit high school, Stratten was doing what most young people do: hanging out with friends, doing homework, and working a part-time job for extra cash. But that was all about to change.

While serving up ice cream at the local Dairy Queen, she met a club promoter—and occasional pimp—named Paul Snider. This fateful meeting would alter Stratten’s life forever.
