August 1954 Issue of “Playboy” Magazine with Arline Hunter as “Playmate of the Month.”

Lot 739. August 1954 Issue of “Playboy” Magazine with Arline Hunter as “Playmate of the Month.” An actress and model, Hunter was a Marilyn Monroe look-alike, photographed here as a brunette. Her centerfold was the first that Hugh Hefner did not purchase from the John Baumgarth Co. Ed DeLong was the photographer. In the 1960s, he provided many of the magazine’s “Playmate” photographs. Hunter had a somewhat limited TV and movie career through the 1960s. Evelyn “Treasure Chest” West, Lily St. Cyr and Yvette Dare are pictured in four pages of burlesque photos. Fantasy by Ray Bradbury titled “The Flying Machine,” humor by Robert C. Ruark, cartoons by Hef and an article on the origins of New Orleans jazz are among the highlights of this issue, along with a profile of Frank Lloyd Wright. Ex. Winning Bid $25.
