Dig A Hole: Cynthia Myers, One of Russ Meyer's Dolls

As time passes, and my one-handed "dates" of yesteryear slowly move on to their rewards, I promise not to fill this blog with news of dead bunnies. Cynthia Myers was different. She was a "Doll."

Her airbrushed pulchritude and pronounced physical assets made her the darling of many a teenage boy with hyperactive hormones. Myers was 17 when she posed for Playboy (isn't there a law?), but kindly HH insisted they wait until she turned 18 to publish the pics. Forget about her time spent skinny-dipping in fossilized Hef's grotto. Ms. Myers was a true cross-over star who made the successful transition from gate-fold to bosom-gold when cast as Casey Anderson, bass player for the all-girl rock band the Carrie Nations, in Russ Meyer's towering, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

I was forced to take cover in the trunk of a car, that's how determined I was to see this movie. BVD earned a dreaded X-rating when it first premiered, and there was no other way for 15-year-old Scotty to study it, save for hiding in the trunk of older neighbor-kid Jeffrey Goldman's car in order to sneak past "security" at the Sunset Drive-In.

For those too full of themselves to have ever witnessed a film directed by the Sergei Eisenstein of soft core porn, Russ had this thing for large-breasted women. When asked how he found these anomalies and curiosities of bosomania to star in his productions, Russ generally replied, "After a certain cup size, they find me." I was fortunate enough to enjoy a steak dinner while seated next to Russ. It was the only time in my life where I was grateful that my dinner companion had the good taste to elbow me, motion towards the waitress, and with a wink of the eye say, "Great tits, huh?"

Learning at the foot of The Master!

More than likely it was one of Hefner's bimbos, not the pajama-ed paleolith, who posted the following obit on Twitter: “I’m saddened by the news of the passing of beloved Playmate Cynthia Myers, Miss December 1968.” On second thought, given that lack of typos and spelling errors, maybe Hef did compose it.

Steve Sullivan's profile piece, posted on Ms. Myer's website, provides more than sufficient biographical information. Cynthia Meyers was 61 and the cause of her death has not been released. Thanks for the mammaries!

I am deeply sadden to hear about the death of Cynthia Myers. Cynthia was without question, the finest and most beautiful woman to ever appear in Playboy magazine. I will miss her very much. Back in 2003 when Playboy was celebrating their 50th anniversary, I wrote Cynthia to see if she would be participating in the festivities. She responded that she had not heard about it. She was add. I was sad because I was attending the event which stopped in Kansas City. We became friends. We sent each other cards. I bought some photos & her Valley of the Dolls movie. And I fell in love with her. She was born on September 22, 1950. I was born on November 4, 1959. My last birthday was sad. She was a very special woman and I loved her.

Cynthia Meyers was so SWEET in Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. And yes, she had some serious curves. But Beyond the Valley of the Dolls had tons of Playboy hawties in it, including my all-time fav Edy Williams who had tons of small parts throughout the 1960's (waych for her as a waitress in one of the Batman episodes!!).

Edie was a Cannes favorite. Every year she'd strip down and run naked through a fountain while the paps snapped away. For a period, she was Mrs. Russ Meyer.

Russ Meyers said marrying Edy was a mistake......

Here is a clip of Edy in Batman, but she was in another episode where she was a waitress;

Sad, sad news indeed. She was my favorite Carrie Nation.

Marcia McBroom (Petronella) made several movies in the 1970s and occasionally appears at Ebertfest.

Dolly Read (Kelly) married, then divorced, re-married, and became a widow - all with Dick Martin from "Laugh-In"!

Erica Gavin (Roxanne) quit movies after appearing in Jonathan Demme's "Caged Heat" in 1974.

Phyllis Davis (Susan) appeared in many grade-Z movies before graduating to the TV show "Vega$", then "Magnum P.I.". She was Dean Martin's squeeze for a few years in the late 1970s. She's pretty much retired too.
