“Superb documentary” – The Varsity (December 7, 1962)

Hefner has surrounded himself with a coterie of sycophants who revere him as their guide and metor. Typical is his PR man, who giggled for the camera, Hef has changed my whole mental attitude… [This] superb documentary has already won the Golden Gate award at the San Francisco Film Festival… Perhaps the last word should go to Hefner who said, on seeing the film, “It’s not very flattering but it’s a work of art.”
