Designing the music 'play' room, which was located left of the main room's staircase, the rear translucent wall had electronic panels, gadgets, reel to reel tape machines, vinyl record turntables, monitors simulated as a disk jockeys play pen. Maxwell Smith had an electronic "used equipment" storage store in Santa Monica where his purchases were stored and sold. Max would salvage all the NASA space program's equipment, which was automatically replaced after each space launch. All the electronics in Hefner's music play room was from these space launches. The production designer joked that Hef could send us all to the moon with a push of a button. See more »
I watched this on the PB channel. I liked how it looked like a party, Hef chatting with guests, strolling around with Barbi, ever present, pipe in hand, looking smooth, walks into an interviews with entertainers, writers, economists, intellectuals, a performance by a band or singer of the period, then onto to more strolling and chatting, it's like you were there! A lot of fun to watch! I saw, David Hemmings with his wife, and an amusing early Deep Purple doing "Hush" with the original vocalist, Nic? Semper (dig that do!) and Blackmore not using Strats then. And ol' Hef asking Ritchie, questions about playing guitar, and Ritchie showing him how to play it, smiling even! How rare is that? Of, course the lovely ladies, gotta have the ladies! I first caught this when I was around 23, I was interested in a lot of the music then, Kinks, Hendrix, Velvet Underground, Stones, etc. Like to collect videos, and would like this on DVD sometime!
