Founder of the Playboy Magazine, Hugh Hefner, passed away on September 27, 2017, at the age of 91. In 1953 he raised $ 8,000 to publish his first edition of Playboy Magazine, which featured Marilyn Monroe. He sold over 50,000 copies. After that, Playboy has become one of the world's best-known brands.

These actresses all posed for Playboy Magazine. Which Playboy Magazine would you buy to remember and honor Hugh Hefner?

My list: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls025531699/#1

you'll probably hear this alot but seriously...i hardly ever bought a playboy magazine...never really got into it, except when they had great articles during the 70's (like henry kissinger)...

but...one copy i do remember buying because it featured a certain favorite actress of mine was the one with bernadette peters in it...

she wasn't exactly nude (mostly flowing outfits...bras and panties...), but still...

That's not even the topic. It's not asking for who you enjoyed seeing naked the most; it's asking which actress to pose in Playboy is the hottest. Maybe no one "reads" Playboy, but that is irrelevant here.

Kristy Swanson,

It seems odd Anna Nicole-Smith, Pamela Anderson and other playmates didn't make the list. Maybe, clarify actresses who posed in Playboy after they found fame, rather than used their playmate status to launch an acting career,

Pamela is on #4. So I do choose people who became actresses after they posed in Playboy. Maybe I can mention that in the description.
But I do want actresses from well-known movies or tv series. No guest performances.

Sorry, I missed that one. My observation is I think you have two type of actresses that do Playboy? This poll could be composed of both or it could be divided to have two polls and be relevant beyond Hef.

Actresses Who Do a Playboy Pictorial
You have established name celebrities or before the fact actresses, that do a nude or non-nude pictorial for artistic reasons or to elevate their profile or re-energize their career. I think that could be a poll on its own.

Which established actress who did a Playboy Magazine pictorial would you buy a copy to remember and honor Hugh Hefner?

Playmate Models Who Become Actress
Then, you have the ones who fall into it or where aspiring and do a pictorial, usually as a Playmate. These actresses achieve their success and fame, after the fact. Since, these actresses where given their big break by Hef,  it might a better tribute to the man. I think that could be a poll on its own. Carmen Electra, Pamela Anderson, Anna Nicole Smith, Dorothy Stratten, Jenny McCarthy, and  Jayne Mansfield all seem to be fall into the model turned actress category.

Which Playboy Magazine playmate pictorial which launched an acting career would you buy a copy to remember and honor Hugh Hefner?

There is a huge number of actresses that have done Playboy , the key is their Playboy date and the date their filmography took off. There seems to be a number of candidates from which to mine from for a poll. IMDb: Top 70 actresses who have done Playboy - a list by Anton,  Top 10 Most Famous Playboy Playmates - TopTenz and many other listings. There is even a listing of actresses who said 'no' to a Playboy pictorial: 13 celebs who said 'no way' to Playboy.

Thank you! I agree with you. I changed the poll into:

Title: Actresses Thanks to Hugh Hefner

Question: These playmates posed in Playboy Magazine, which launched or contributed to their acting career. Thanks to Hugh Hefner we can see numerous of great and 'hot' performances of these actresses. In honor of Hugh Hefner, who is your favorite?

"Actresses Who Got Their Start in Playboy" is a better title. The wording you have currently is not correct English.

FYC:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Playboy#Celebrities
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_people_in_Playboy_1953%E2%80%9359
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls072704799/
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls000099616/

Randomness - Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is about to be released in theaters. Hefner's middle name was Marston. The universe is messing around...

For the future, make sure you always put "Poll Suggestion" before your title on suggestions.

And in English, there should not be a space between the $ and the amount - $8,000 not $ 8,000.

Also, I suggest "The first issue sold over 50,000."

Thank you! I forgot 'Poll Suggestion' in the rush.
I've made the corrections. I saw all the links you send me. I couldn't find new ones, but I will keep searching. At first I didn't add Denise Crosby because there isn't a good picture. Now she is in the list.

The title is now; Actresses Who Got Their Start in Playboy

It doesn't seem accurate to say that Marilyn Monroe or Sharon Stone got their start in Playboy. They had both been in Hollywood movies before that.

It's really hard to pull a line somewhere. I know what you mean, but the list also is for actresses with a starting career and I don't wanna miss Marilyn :). I changed one of the lines into: These playmates posed in Playboy Magazine, which launched their acting career or has given it a boost.

Maybe my orignal idea wasn't that bad, but I liked and agreed what urbanemovies said. 
Since, these actresses where given their big break by Hef,  it might a better tribute to the man.

Not sure why you didn't include these:

Ursula Andress
Margo Kidder
Kim Basinger
Drew Barrymore
Denise Richards
Suzanne Somers
Shannen Doherty
Farrah Fawcett
Joan Collins
Raquel Welch
Bo Derek
Charlize Theron
Daryl Hannah
Lindsay Lohan
Brigitte Bardot
Catherine Deneuve
Uma Thurman
Sophia Loren
Jane Fonda
Ann-Margret
Melanie Griffith

For example, Uma Thurman was in Pulp Fiction in 1994. And she posed in Playboy in 1996. So she didn't have her acting career thanks to Playboy.
Drew Barrymore begin acting at the age of 5 (1980). She was in the playboy in 1995.
I checked most of the above suggestions you made and the acting career was serious enough when they posed in Playboy. I will check the others.
So, I'm not sure why I should add these ones?

hey hoekkie...

i think you're backing yourself into a corner with trying to be specific on whether or not it was a help to their career or while they already had one (or even if some were trying to revive a dying one)...

instead, just simply list actresses who have appeared in playboy period...let the voter decide if they deserve their vote...

just sayin'...

peace...

In that case I'll be back at the start, to my original idea, as I started this thread.
And then, again, I have to change the title because it doesn't match with the list.
But I agree with urbanemovies:
"Playmate Models Who Become Actress
Then, you have the ones who fall into it or where aspiring and do a pictorial, usually as a Playmate. These actresses achieve their success and fame, after the fact. Since, these actresses where given their big break by Hef, it Playmate Models Who Become Actress

I changed the question from 'who is your favorite' into: 
In honor of Hugh Hefner, who do you think is the 'hottest'?
I think with 'favorite' everybody will choose the best actrice. And I think Marilyn will win that for sure.
So, 'hottest' seems a better competition.
