Private: Likely to go for more than $10,000 apiece

Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy, plans to auction off his little black books:

As the man in the pajamas thumbed through his old address books for the first time in 40 years, the names inside were not just any old names: Richard Avedon, Oleg Cassini, Nat King Cole, Rona Jaffe.

Then he came across an entry that really set the wheels of memory turning. It said, “Big blonde from ‘Wild Women of Wongo.”‘

He smiled and explained: “A no-budget movie made in Miami.”

And the blonde?

“No idea,” he said wistfully, chin jutting out like the prow of a ship. “I apparently never got her number.”
