Claudia Jennings is perhaps the most recognizable Playmate, aside from one, i.e. Marilyn Monroe to appear in films. Victoria Vetri was another. Jennings untimely death, at 29, occurred only months before she would have turned 30. Some critics believe she was limited as an actress. Yet a New York Magazine writer praised her "fully clothed" acting in the off Broadway production of Dark of the Moon.
