A former Playboy Playmate of the Year who appeared in the horror movie "Rosemary's Baby" has been charged with shooting her boyfriend at their Hollywood apartment.

The district attorney's office says 66-year-old Victoria Rathgeb pleaded not guilty to attempted murder on Tuesday. She remains jailed Wednesday on $1.5 million bail and could face up to life in prison if convicted.

Police say that she shot her boyfriend during a domestic dispute Saturday evening.

Los Angeles police spokeswoman Norma Eisenman says the man, whose identity wasn't released, remains in critical condition.

Rathgeb was 1968's Playmate of the Year under the name of Angela Dorian. She had TV and movie roles in the 1960s and 1970s and played a recovering heroin addict in the 1968 hit "Rosemary's Baby."
