Hugh Hefner: Once Upon a Time ★★★ 1992 (R)

Fascinating look at the “Bunny” king and Playboy Enterprises. His celebrated life of isolation and excess at the Playboy mansions is portrayed as is the founding of “Playboy” magazine in 1953 and the Playboy clubs (with their notorious Bunnies). Includes interviews, home movies, and photographs. Admiring yet not without a few sharp edges. 91m/C VHS, DVD . Hugh Hefner; D: Robert Heath; Nar: James Coburn.
