Dolly Read: British B-Movie Bunny
Ok, she wasn't in a whole lot of movies but it seems that she liked to get naked and that's good enough for me. She had an uncredited role in the Hammer horror Kiss of the Vampire, then in 1969 was in some movie that I've never heard of called That Tender Touch, and in 1970 she played the lead as the busty and innocent rockstar wannabe in Russ Meyer's Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, a role I'm guessing she won based on the size of her rack and not on her acting credentials. She was also in an episode of "Charlies Angels" and in two, count 'em, two episodes of "Fantasy Island."
And she was in Playboy. In May 1966 she was Playmate of the Month and then posed for the magazine again in 1970. Miss May also worked as a bunny in the Playboy Clubs in Chicago, New York and London. According to her Playboy bio, her "turnons" included handsome, rugged men but then she went on to marry this guy, so I don't know what the hell happened there.
This is what Dolly Read used to look like naked.
