|There are two videos on MySpace that capture an old American news report on the opening of the Hollywood Playboy Club, on Auld Year's Nicht / Hogmanay (that's New Year's Eve to you non-Scots!).
They show lots of footage that has subsequently been used in documentaries, including many produced by Playboy.

The commentary is dumb but then all documentaries/newsreels from the 60s have that patronising tone, whatever the subject. Pathe and Movietone have awful commentaries: patronising and sarcastic.
Anyway, hope some of you recognise yourselves or maybe someone you worked beside.
