Miss December 1968 Cynthia Myers Gets Dramatic in Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
Today, the new documentary, Life Itself (based on Roger Ebert's memoir of the same name), opens in theaters across the country as well as VOD. Because all worlds eventually collide, it has a decidedly Playboy connection—i.e., Ebert and Hef both attended the University of Illinois and worked at the Daily Illini, the campus newspaper. Not to mention that Hef counted Gene Siskel, Ebert's longtime on-air sparring partner, among his closest friends, inviting Siskel on many of the worldwide excursions he took on his private plane, the Big Bunny. Yet the connections don't stop there—after all, you're at Playmates.com, where a post isn't complete unless it includes a Playmate. In this case, it's Miss December 1968 Cynthia Myers, who starred in Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, which was written by none other than a young film critic named Roger Ebert.
