Death of a Starlet

Podcast Series Death of a Starlet

In August of 1980, Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten was found dead at just 20 years old. She was the girl next door with the shy smile and whispery voice who didn’t know her own beauty. To Hugh Hefner, she was his next Marilyn Monroe. To famed director Peter Bogdonovich, she was his muse. And to her husband, Paul Snider, she was his ticket to fame and fortune. All three ambitious men adored her. Only one of them murdered her. How did Dorothy’s Hollywood dreams lead to her death?

From Wondery, and the team behind the hit series Hollywood & Crime (The Dating Game Killer, The Wonderland Murders) comes a six-part series about love, sex and murder. Co-hosted by Tracy Pattin and Josh Lucas.

In the first episode of Death of a Starlet, Dorothy Stratten, a stunning seventeen-year-old who turned heads everywhere she went, was stuck working at Dairy Queen. There was no denying, Dorothy was special. But the innumerable qualities that formed her ‘It’ Factor also attracted attention from the seedy underbelly of East Vancouver. Paul Snider, known around town as a hustler and a pimp, saw Dorothy’s appeal as his meal ticket to Hollywood. But first, he had to convince her to pose nude to enter a Playboy 25th Anniversary playmate hunt.
