Katon makes a charitable contribution to the world.
Well, as we often do when returning from an intermission we're sharing something a bit more eye-catching than usual. Rosanne Katon, who you see above, appeared in such films as the 1976 blaxploitation flick The Muthers, in which she starred with fellow centerfold Jean Bell, the 1980 horror classic Motel Hell, and the black actioner Ebony, Ivory & Jade, discussed here. She was already established in film and television when she decided to appear in Playboy magazine in September 1978. It's hard to say if it helped her film career. Her roles came with neither greater nor lesser frequency than before. She continued to act into the early 1990s, then segued into the humanitarian sector. Which is apropos, because this extraordinary photo shows her ample generosity. It was shot during her 1970s Playboy sessions but wasn't published until 1996.
