In the history of Playmate of the Year, Cyndi Wood is one of two PMOY’s to start off as Miss February and go on to take the crowned. As Miss February 1973, Cyndi wowed fans with a sassy photo shoot that, among other iconic photos, featured her coyly showing off in a shirt emblazoned “Rich Bitch” despite the fact that Cyndi was as sweet as they come.
Cyndi used Playboy as a springboard for her acting career and went on to star in several films including a well reviewed performance as Moon (likely named for Cyndi’s celestial body…) in 1979′s Van Nuys Boulevard and an extremely memorable performance as the Playmate of the Year in Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now.
