See Nancy Scott (model) for the Playboy playmate.
Nancy Scott (1931-2005) was an influential theater/movie critic for the San Francisco Examiner newspaper from the late 1970s to the early 1990s.
Scott was integral to expanding the Examiner's coverage of theater and film beyond the traditional venues to the small and avant-garde performances and movies that were blossoming in the San Francisco Bay Area -- including an early review of The Reduced Shakespeare Company that brought that acting troop its first mainstream notice.
The Bay Area theater community acknowledged Scott's efforts in the mid-1980s when a poll of Bay Area theaters voted her the best theater critic.
