Description

From the diaries of a Playboy model, experience the swingin' 70's from behind the guarded gates of the Playboy Mansion West. After being chosen as one of the original Playboy Models, Dianne is soon invited to join the elite group at the Sunday afternoon barbeques at Hef's. Dazzled by a wonderland of celebrities and glamour, she is now rubbing elbows with Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman, Joe Namath, Ryan O'Neal and the beautiful people. The sexual revolution is in full swing and opportunities abound at Hef's new Shangri-la in Holmby Hills. The game room has a private bedroom, the infamous grotto with piped in music has the Jacuzzi and of course there's the legendary upstairs master bedroom. The line between fantasy and reality soon begins disappearing within her new life. She has found herself in this fantasy world after a heartbreaking end to a love affair with a major league baseball player in Orange County. Hollywood had seemed like the place to mend her broken heart. Ignoring her boyfriend's warnings about "the casting couches" she strikes out alone to find out for herself. As a naive small town girl diving head first into the allure of Hollywood, initially each adventure seems more exciting than the next. Soon she is jetting off to Vegas with Telly Savalas' Kojak gang. She is sharing an after show cocktail with Johnny Carson in his dressing room backstage. And her best friend is dating Elvis. It's one icon after another and some of the experiences are shocking. Sadly, she begins to realize the perverted reality of tinseltown as even the legendary George Burns inquires "You'd drop your panties for an acting job wouldn't you?" After a second appearance on a Bob Hope Show she reflects on the endless disappointments and constant rejections. Now only one question has to be answered. Is it worth it?
