Pat Lawler was Playboy’s Playmate of the Month August 1955. She is best known for her appearance in the movie Invasion of the Saucer Men (1957). She was photographed by Hal Adams who shot ten Playmate pictorials for Playboy between 1955 and 1957.
Hal Adams stopped shooting for Playboy in the late 50s when Hugh Hefner wanted him to begin featuring more nudity in his photographs.
He was a good friend to New York fashion photographer Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton and Matthew Rolston.


Cyberwoman 6 by Helmut Newton, 2000.
In his later life, Newton lived in both Monte Carlo and Los Angeles, California. He was in an accident on 23 January 2004, when his car sped out of control and hit a wall in Sunset Boulevard, coming out from the Chateau Marmont Hotel, which had for several years served as his residence in Southern California. He died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. His ashes are buried three plots down from the grave of Marlene Dietrich at the Städtischer Friedhof III in Berlin.
