As ''Miss March'' unfolds, we take a historical, discreet peek at other films touched by Hugh Hefner and his Playmates
THE ASPHALT JUNGLE (1950)
John Huston's film noir made a star out of Marilyn Monroe, who, just a couple of years after the movie's release, would grace the cover of Playboy's first issue. The debut edition of Hugh Hefner's raunchy magazine for men also featured a pre-fame shot of the actress with ''nothing on but the radio'' as Monroe herself joked about the nude pose. Playboy proved an instant success and Hefner himself would soon become an extremely wealthy man. Rich enough to ultimately purchase the burial plot next to Monroe's.
