I have just joined this site and am not sure if my contribution is appropriate but after reading Ron Angel's experience I thought I would have a go.
Way back in the late 60s myself and a friend were having a drink in a pub called the Swiss Cottage in North London.Just before closing time a chap shouted out,"Can anyone be at the Playboy Club tomorrow? We are in urgent need of extras." We were told that Laurence Harvey would be there.
Needless to say,John and I turned up on time and were taken through to the casino where several other pub regulars were chatting up a handful of "Bunny Girls." It seemed,and probably was, hours before "Larry" turned up.Apparently he had been waiting for his chauffeur-driven Rolls to arrive (although his hotel was just around the corner) but as we were subsequently told, that's what made him the star he was.
When the cameras finally rolled,Laurence Harvey - who was portraying a drunk- staggered in between the roulette tables,where myself and the other extras where seated.The dialogue was all in Italian so I had no idea of the storyline but the scene ended with a scuffle and Mr Harvey being thrown out of the casino.
This scene was played over and over again and just as I thought they had got it right, Laurence suggested there was not enough atmosphere and lit up and gave out several cigarettes to the extras - the fact that several of us did not smoke was no excuse.I was impressed with the detail that went into every segment of the scene,and realised the dedication and the professionalism that is required at the highest level.
I have never actually seen Rebus and would be very grateful to anyone who could advise me on how to obtain a copy.
