Playboy, January 1965

Only in Hefner’s universe would Harold Pinter and pin-ups collide as they do in the January 1965 issue.

Between playing chess and seducing beautiful women after a hard day on Madison Avenue he was reading quality literature.  

Here comes the obligatory beatnik joke...text by Peter Ustinov.

Below are suggested Christmas presents...what man wouldn't be happy to receive a Dunhill book bar?
