Nov. 22, 1980: “Galaxina” is released to movie theaters three months after one of the stars, former Playmate of the Year Dorothy Stratten, died in a murder-suicide. “Since Stratten plays a robot in the title role, there's no telling whether she had talent or not," Kevin Thomas says.

Crown International changed its ad campaign after Stratten’s death, using early concept artwork in ads rather than the planned photos of Stratten, according to  Terri Smith, the company’s publicity director.
